Toyota Tsusho Corporation, a global trading company within the Toyota Group, and Tokai Corp, a specialist in hospital linen supply and medical peripheral businesses in Japan, have announced the launch of Valabhi Hospital Services in India. The joint venture aims to revolutionize hospital linen management and offer improved hygiene in healthcare institutions. Valabhi Hospital Services will offer comprehensive end-to-end linen management services to hospitals in Bangalore initially, and plans to expand operations to other cities and neighboring states soon.
The venture brings in the technology and philosophy that Tokai Corp has developed over the last 69 years for infection control in Japan. Valabhi Hospital Services aims to offer hygienic laundry and linen management services without compromising on quality and reliability. The solution provides linen rental model to free the hospital management from capex expenditure, RFID tag system for ease of ground level staff, and end-to-end linen management service to avoid any disconnection between person to person.
