In hospital support facilities projects, we primarily focus on the individual requirements and possibilities. This is where valuable opportunities can be found for increasing efficiency and, consequently, securing competitiveness.

Whether you are looking at changing your food supply systems, outsourcing the laundry, or finding a new supply structure for commodities – we identify corporate specific solutions for demand driven structures and smooth workflows. 

Mastering the requirements from different areas of hospital support facilities

A key characteristic of our comprehensive consulting and planning services is our detailed knowledge of all main and auxiliary processes, priorities and challenges of hospital logistics in the following areas:

  • Pharmacy and drug supplies
  • Canteen and food supplies
  • Warehouse and material supplies (MHD)
  • Central sterilisation and sterile supplies (CSSD)
  • Utility areas and waste disposal
  • Laundries and laundry supply processes

  • Increased patient safety through the introduction of a universal electronic documentation system for patient drug supplies
  • Conversion of the meal production concept with selection and adaptation of the related meal distribution system to the patient
  • Streamlining the variety of articles, modular supply options, and make-or-buy decisions on goods supplies
  • Make-or-buy decisions for sterile supplies
  • Reorganisation of processes for legally compliant and cost-effective waste disposal
  • Economic feasibility studies for laundry supply processes and support in the subsequent stages 
  • Introduction of automated order and delivery processes for in-house goods transport
