The two most important metrics for healthcare facilities are labor costs and pounds per operator hour (PPOH). Chicago’s multi-functional equipment use advanced technology that increases productivity while reducing costs. Automated sheet separating, cornerless feeding and high volume finishing greatly reduce the number of FTEs.
Employee management is also eased with CHI-Touch – programmable technology that can be set to individual client specifications with a simple user interface. This means that blankets, gowns, towels, knitted fitted sheets, IC pads and pillowcases can all be processed at the touch of a button. The system also tracks employee PPOH, giving managers a solid measurement tool, as well as machine diagnostics. When you align your plant with Chicago, you will reduce processing time and labor – and make a direct impact on the bottom line.
