Laundry Services

Sale Linen Service (SLS) is a business unit of Central Gippsland Health (CGH), which is a major provider of health, community and residential aged care services in the Wellington Shire.

SLS employs 39 full time local Gippsland staff, providing approximately $1 million of wages into the local community.

Its customer base stretches from East to South Gippsland and everywhere in between. Current production has reached an average of 118 tonnes of linen provided per month. SLS currently operates one shift per day, Monday to Friday and provides transport and delivery to customers seven days a week providing linen requirements for major regional health services such as Latrobe Regional Hospital, Bairnsdale Regional Health Service and Gippsland Southern Health Service, as well sub regional health services, medical centres, aged care facilities and hospitality clients.

As a business unit of CGH, rrevenue generated is returned to CGH to support projects and procurement of infrastructure and medical equipment, assisting in providing high quality health care to the community.

The SLS laundry plant facility had a $1.2 million upgrade in 2014, making it one of the most up to date plants in Australia. The upgrade to the washing, drying, ironing and folding lines was complemented by another $250,000 upgrade in August 2017, where two more additional folding and conditioning machines were installed. These efficient processing machines build in extra capacity to process linen in a shorter timeframe.

SLS can provide all healthcare linen such as sheeting, blankets, towelling, kitchen linen, bed linen, gowns, theatre scrub suits and sterilised theatre pre-packs. It also specialises in the processing of residential aged care clothing for residents.
