At ImageFIRST, we’re more than just suppliers of patient gowns in Atlanta, GA, and beyond. This past November, the associates at ImageFIRST North Carolina collected toys and other supplies to give to the organization, Operation Christmas Child.

At ImageFIRST Healthcare Laundry Specialists, we pride ourselves in constantly upholding our company’s purpose: “To build a great company by positively impacting the lives of our associates, our community, our customers, and their patients.”
Have you ever received a delivery only to be met by a driver who really just wanted to get on to the next job on the list? In the medical industry, it is important to take note of the discrepancy between a simple delivery driver and a long-term service partner.
This is precisely why ImageFIRST doesn’t hire mere delivery drivers to drop off products like patient gowns and scrub uniforms in Lagrange, GA. Instead, we hire dedicated representatives who are vested in our client’s success. Our focus is on the person who is using the linen we provide, rather than the mere task of fulfilling the job. We call these caring and dedicated representatives Customer Advocates.
We wouldn’t give your patients something we wouldn’t give to our own family.
That’s our standard. The same amount of effort that we’d put into making a birthday cake for a parent or planning a going-away party for a sibling goes into ensuring that each and every piece of linen that leaves our facilities is fit for the medical practices and patients that will use it.
It’s estimated that more than 16 billion injections are given worldwide each year - that’s a lot of sharps! Of the billions of pounds of medical waste, 15% is considered to be infectious, toxic or radioactive. In many cases, hospital waste can contain harmful microorganisms, and if not disposed of properly, it increases the risk of healthcare associated infections.
For healthcare administrators, consolidation is always a goal to reduce costs and labor. ImageFIRST Atlanta has something for those healthcare administrators in addition to our already cost-effective medical laundry services in Panama City, FL and beyond: our medical waste disposal services, and we have promotion around it this month!.
At ImageFIRST, when things get serious, whether in the form of a sudden medical emergency, impending natural disaster or personal crisis, we take action. We are guided in everything we do by our purpose, which is to build a great company by positively impacting the lives of our associates, our community, our customers, and their patients. Our purpose dictates that when the going gets tough, we jump in and help, whether a customer needs emergency medical uniforms in Springfield, IL, or our community needs support.
ImageFIRST Atlanta is already well-known for our laundry and linen services for healthcare in Mobile, AL. But one thing our customers may not know about is our medical waste disposal service. Since 1967, we’ve been working to change the way facilities handle the details in patient care. With our new promotion for our medical waste disposal program now going on, we think it’s the perfect time to highlight four reasons that you should check out this service:
It’s often said that children are our collective future. It’s a cliché, yes, but those words carry with them a reminder of the value accrued by investing in youth.
So what is the greatest investment one can make in their and other’s children? The greatest investment of all: education.
Our schools are one of our greatest infrastructures. Every single child born in the U.S. is afforded the opportunity to receive an education; yet, those public and private institutions are always in need of greater materials and resources to enrich the lives of young minds.
So how does ImageFIRST contribute to a greater future? By putting our money where our mouth is.
If you aren't aware (and you should be!), we here at ImageFIRST Atlanta offer what we call our Comfort Care™ Line of Premium Patient Apparel. This innovative line features incredibly comfortable robes and elegant gowns that are breathable, light, durable, and, most of all, extremely soft! They are made exclusively by us and are available in different colors and styles.
So, if you are (or foresee that you will soon be) an ImageFIRST Atlanta Comfort Care Line fanatic, you will love our new "Plush IV Gown with Telemetry Pocket!"
While the ImageFIRST Atlanta associates spend much of their day helping our Customer Advocates package up and deliver patient gowns, medical scrubs, uniforms, and more to our clients in and around Atlanta, GA, that is not to say that they do not get time to relax. In fact, this past fall, our associates had plenty of fun on Halloween, eating lunch with their bosses, and much more!
