Toyota Tsusho Corporation, a leading global trading company within the Toyota Group, has partnered with Tokai Corp, a specialist in hospital linen supply and medical peripheral businesses in Japan, to launch Valabhi Hospital Services in India. The venture aims to offer comprehensive end-to-end linen management services to hospitals in India, ensuring improved hygiene and patient care. With a 55% and 45% stake respectively, Toyota Tsusho Corporation and Tokai Corporation have collaborated to provide this revolutionary service.
Valabhi Hospital Services, operating in Bangalore alongside Adityavani Facility Service Private Limited and Vashkleen Laundry Services Private Limited, is set to expand its operations to other peripheral services in interstate cities and neighbouring states in the near future. The laundry management process involves estimating the required stock of linen, identifying and segregating soiled and dirty linen, labelling for identification and traceability, collecting and transporting them in covered trolleys to the laundry, thoroughly disinfecting and sluicing the soiled linen, washing, drying, repairing, calendaring and ironing, and finally delivering, sorting, and storing the clean linen.
According to Mr. Hiroyuki Shinoda, Managing Director, Valabhi Hospital Services, “Contaminated linens can become a potential source of cross-contamination. With this in mind, we are proud to introduce Valabhi Hospital Services, a solution that provides hygienic laundry and linen management services without compromising on quality and reliability.” With the Indian government prioritizing healthcare infrastructure, Valabhi Hospital Services is poised to safeguard patients and staff from the risk of infections and support healthcare professionals in their essential work.
