Linen King earns HLAC accreditation seal of approval


Columbia, Mo. — The Columbia branch of Linen King was recently accredited by The Healthcare Laundry Accreditation Council (HLAC). This accreditation is the industry’s highest rating on quality and safety.


“The HLAC designation provides our customers the peace of mind that comes from knowing their laundry services partner is meeting or exceeding the highest standards as established by an independent, healthcare-specific accrediting agency,” said Leonard McCullough, CEO of Linen King.  “As you can imagine, cleanliness, safety and best practices are paramount in our industry, and healthcare systems place a huge emphasis on this type of certification.”

Linen King is currently in the process of scheduling certification inspections for its remaining locations and plans to complete the process in 2014 as HLAC inspectors are available.


HLAC is a non-profit, independent organization that inspects and accredits laundries processing textiles for hospitals, nursing homes and other healthcare facilities. Its mission is to publish high standards for processing healthcare textiles in laundries, and to accredit laundries that meet those standards. A national, independent inspection process assures customers that the highest quality and safety standards are met.
