It’s a bustling place, full of dirty laundry.
The vast 72,000-square-foot space, installed on part of the former Stroh Brewery site, processes all the linens from 19 area hospitals and over 150 clinics. That means the facility cleans about 32 million pounds of linen annually.

This year, two East Side businesses were recognized. Health Systems Cooperative Laundry was given a “Green Practices” award, and Kendall’s received a “Commercial Green Building Design” award.
