United Laundry Services Inc. (ULS), Honolulu, recently joined UMF Corp.'s PerfectCLEAN® Infection Prevention Network (PC/Network) of specialized healthcare laundries serving acute-care hospitals, and extended care and ambulatory surgical centers, according to a news release.

The PC/Network formed in 2012, and includes healthcare laundries like ULS that specialize in processing linens and textiles to reduce the risk of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs). ULS, which was co-founded by former Hawaii first lady Vicky Cayetano, provides commercial laundry services to the vast majority of Hawaii's healthcare and hospitality markets. It has operations on The Big Island and Oahu.

"When presented with the opportunity, combined with the added local support of UMF's distributor Encompass Group, we immediately saw the advantages of becoming part of the PC/Network," said Cayetano, ULS president and CEO. "Our healthcare customers can rest assured they're receiving from ULS the best HAI protection and support through our program, which is headed by John Ross, United's PC Manager. We firmly believe this will benefit Hawaii's population and strengthen medical care."
