Hospitals manage a complexity of challenges and should not be burdened with everyday mundane tasks that detract from focusing on their core competencies.

CleanStream Systems, designed and engineered by MEMIOS Environmental Technologies (Greensboro, NC), impressed hospital management attendees at the recent American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE) Annual Conference & Technical Exhibition in Chicago, Il. CleanStream combines advanced mechanical and air moving technologies to automate the repetitive, laborious, and inefficient tasks of safely moving large volumes of soiled linen and waste out of hospitals.
The cost of labor may represent as much as 60% of a hospital’s operating budget so it makes sense to evaluate potential areas where labor resources are most intensive. One obvious, but oftentimes overlooked example, is the utilization of carts, elevators, and gravity chutes to transport soiled linen, trash, and recyclables from their disposal point to a central collection location. Most hospitals assume this time-consuming process as their only alternative, but CleanStream offers innovative transport methods to automate the cycle and thereby reduce costly inefficiencies by as much as 10 times. One prominent Florida hospital recently automated their linen cart filling process and reduced human interventions by 80%. CleanStream Systems are ideally suited for new construction, but also offer solutions for existing facilities that use carts and gravity chutes for collection and transport.
“Hospitals manage a complexity of challenges and should not be burdened with everyday mundane tasks that detract from focusing on their core competencies,” remarked Jeff Shell, Vice President of Business Development. “We recognize that each hospital is different, so MEMIOS developed CleanStream to represent a customized system designed to address individual financial challenges and waste removal needs for each client.”
CleanStream Automation Systems promote healthier environments through cleaner and safer waste containment practices. Repurposing manual processes will also decrease human exposure to potential health risks and minimize liability exposure. Results are realized through greater financial flexibility along with increased patient and staff satisfaction.
