Environmental Services plays an integral role in patient care and safety across UHN.
The UHN team, which includes Housekeeping, Transportation and Linen & Laundry, carry out vital work every day. This dedicated group of individuals ensure patient rooms, clinics and public spaces are clean and safe; transport patients to and from their rooms and appointments, and make sure medical gases, specimens, equipment, and mail get where they need to go. They also distribute clean, sterile linens and collect waste and soiled linens from across the organization.
