Hospital Housekeeping Systems (HHS) has been named to Modern Healthcare magazine’s inaugural “Healthcare’s Hottest” list of the fastest-growing companies in healthcare. HHS saw an impressive 78.9% increase in revenue from 2006 to 2011.
In the September 24 print edition of the magazine, Modern Healthcare profiles HHS and the 39 other organizations selected as “Healthcare’s Hottest” in 2012.
From the Modern Healthcare profile:
What it does: Provides high-quality housekeeping and linen management services to the healthcare industry, partnering exclusively with acute-care hospitals.
How it grew: “Our organization has always believed in a ‘growth by reference’ business model,” says Jon Stokes, Hospital Housekeeping Systems’ senior director of marketing.
“Our best sales and marketing tools have always been our partner facilities.” Stokes says Hospital Housekeeping Systems has racked up the references because of its focused expertise: providing support services management for acute-care hospitals.
After 35 years of providing only housekeeping and linen services, the company responded to pleas from its partner hospitals and added food-services management and patient-throughput software last year.
