Central Laundry Operations/Internal Linen Distribution - Facilities Support Services

The Central Laundry is a shared service delivered by Central Zone which provides laundry rental and processing to 11 sites in three health districts (Central Zone, South Shore and Colchester-East Hants) and the IWK Health Centre, as well as four local long term care facilities and certain Emergency Health Services sites.

We provide linen distribution services at the QEII Health Sciences Centre and Dartmouth General Hospital. Our facility is located on the Nova Scotia Hospital property in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia and is approximately 50 years old.

In 2002, it underwent a $3.5-million upgrade including the installation of modern washers, dryers and a linen distribution system, providing improved energy efficiency, water utilization and ergonomics for staff. Though modernized ten years ago, the facility is nearing capacity and still has some very old, inefficient equipment in use, including a 1959 ironer.
