The reason for our relationship with Paris is simple – we trust them. They have demonstrated without question a willingness to act as our agent and in our best interest at all times. This is a rare commodity, and they have been a real partner for Pinnacle. Paris brings attention to quality and integrity. They do what they say they are going to do.

Quality, on-time delivery is critical to successful operations in our hospitals and clinics. The Emerald Textiles Team has impressed us with consistent, on-time delivery and quality customer service. Our nursing and environmental services teams are confident that they will have the linens they need in the right place at the right time with Emerald.

Outsourcing with Paris Healthcare has decreased our costs and reduced the risk and headaches associated with running an in-house operation of the size we had, which was substantial. In addition, we have great customer service.

Emerald’s innovative programs and implementation of best practices influenced our decision to choose them as our exclusive healthcare linen services provider. Their commitment to innovation drives technological efficiency and streamlined operations, which in turn supports UC San Diego Health System’s goal of world class care.
Greg May
Director Environmental Services, UC San Diego Health System
More than a ‘supplier’, and even more than a reputable service partner, Paris has become a key ally in our pursuit of efficiently serving our patients and enabling our staff to focus on and provide the best care possible. From the smooth transition in 2004 to today, we continue to make steady, annual progress in lowering our linen management costs. Over the years, key staff members, including myself, have developed close working relationships with a number of Paris personnel. They are caring professionals that we have come to trust and depend on.

Since switching to Emerald Textiles, problems associated with linen have disappeared and quality has greatly improved. Partners like Emerald, who we can count on to deliver, are invaluable to us.
