As students of how to help craft better and better patient experiences, one thing we’ve consistently noticed is that for many patients, being in the hospital or even in an outpatient facility has the potential to feel like the furthest thing from home that there is. Frightening procedures, uncertain outcomes, and cold, sterile-looking machines can unsettle any patient and make them feel as homesick as can be.
Our mission as a provider of solutions for patient satisfaction is to help patients feel as comfortable and at-home as possible. When in a medical facility, the last thing that will help patients feel at home is uncomfortable, stained or frayed towels, gowns, blankets and other linens. But warm, comfortable, soft and stain-free linens, scrubs and uniforms in Fort Lauderdale, FL or anywhere in the state? That’s another story.
We all look forward to sleeping in our own beds after a long trip away, and even when patients can’t sleep in their own beds due to a medical stay, they can have a little bit of home with them. In fact, all of our associates who handle ImageFIRST products uphold our “family standard,” meaning that they’ll only provide your facility with the same quality of products and services that they would want their own family members to have.
At ImageFIRST, our understanding of the importance of family extends beyond our facilities’ and customers’ facilities walls. In fact, we help to build walls—not the kind that keep people out, but the kind that shelter families and provide a space where they can thrive. We’re talking about our regular volunteer events with Habitat for Humanity, a charity that has built thousands of homes for families in need. This June, ten ImageFIRST Miami associates participated in a Habitat for Humanity event, our second this year. Our associates were proud to assist families in their community, just as they are proud to help families who depend on our customers for medical care. And, of course, our associates consider themselves one big family at ImageFIRST.

Here at ImageFIRST Miami, we are much more than your typical West Palm Beach, FL, medical uniform provider and linen service. We seek to offer our clients innovative products and solutions that will help their healthcare facilities stand out. Furthermore, we would like our clients to know that with the continued push for, and focus on, infection prevention in the healthcare industry, we also have innovations such as our Triple BioShield Protection® that can help them to keep their linen clean and protected. Inevitably, with a service such as this, we can help our clients acquire the linen they need to keep patients healthy and happy!
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 1 out of every 25 hospital patients in the United States contracts at least one healthcare-associated infection (HAI). This number is startling because it also means that more than half a million people contract an HAI every year.
