Assisting you in your mission of care

London Hospital Linen Service Incorporated (LHLS) is a not-for-profit organization serving the healthcare industry. The LHLS board of directors has members from the healthcare industry who assist in recognizing where value lies for healthcare organizations. This contribution from healthcare providers in our community reflects the LHLS commitment to make a difference for our healthcare members whether in a hospital, clinic or long-term care setting. Over 12 million kg of linen are cared for and shipped by LHLS per year.

When you’re part of the LHLS cycle of care, you’re more than a customer – you’re a member of our organization. And membership has its privileges. You have an opportunity to participate in our committees, driving continuous change and improvement.

The ever-changing needs of the healthcare industry are the focus of our valued employees. The experience of the front-line and senior leadership is second to none in North America.

Through innovation, attention to detail and a passion to support healthcare, LHLS makes a difference so you can make a difference too.
