Winner of the 2011 Wear the Care Contest announced
Selected from more than 170 entries, the 85 individuals in the housekeeping and laundry departments at MGH will receive a complimentary Image Apparel makeover from Cintas worth $10,000, the release noted.
An independent judging panel selected the housekeeping and laundry department at MGH for best demonstrating its need for an apparel program and detailing how the program would improve the satisfaction of hospital patients and visitors, the release stated.
"The housekeeping and laundry departments are very visible health care staff members," said Ellen Greer, director of housekeeping at MGH.
"Our outdated uniforms don''t reflect the tremendous effort we put into our job of keeping the hospital clean. It''s not a glamorous job, but it’s a very important job and our uniforms should reflect that. Winning this contest has boosted morale and renews the pride of our staff," Greer added.
