S.W. Betz Company, Inc. Successfully Implements New Efficiency Systems for Howard County General Hospital

Tuesday, March 5, 2013

The S. W. Betz Company, Inc. ( successfully implemented a complete weighing system to verify laundry weights issued by a third party and also installed a storage system to more efficiently maintain and handle the materials supplied to various departments in the hospital.

Howard County General Hospital, like many hospital providers, outsources their laundry services to a third party contractor who bills for their services based upon the total weight of laundry processed. The Supply Chain Manager wanted a way to verify the weights their laundry contractor was providing and in turn basing their billing on. As a part of this project our contact at HCGH was also looking for ways to more efficiently maintain and store the materials they supplied to the various departments in the hospital. The resulting solutions allowed HCGH the ability to verify their laundry billing weights and more effectively deliver critical supplies through out the hospital.

Howard County General Hospital (HCGH), a Member of Johns Hopkins Medical System, has been serving the greater Howard County, MD community for nearly 40 years. Their mission is to “Provide the highest quality care to improve the health of our entire community through innovation, collaboration, service excellence, diversity and a commitment to patient safety”.

Linda Hurka, President of the S. W. Betz Company comments, “Having worked with many hospitals and medical services providers over the years, we had a good understanding of the needs at HCGH. Working with our primary contact at HCGH we were able to develop and implement applications that would provide the solutions they were looking for. We were pleased to be able to add HCGH as another customer to our expanding portfolio of health care related clients.”

The S. W. Betz Company, founded in 1933, is a woman-owned enterprise representing many of the leading manufacturers in the Material Handling Industry. With new leadership at the helm, the company prides itself on continuing traditions developed since 1933~ identifying solutions that meet the unique needs of their customers, delivering exceptional value and providing excellent customer service.
