Spotless has secured several long-term extensions in healthcare including a five-year deal with the Alfred Hospital in Melbourne and a four-year extension with Healthscope.
Spotless said the contracts represented a combined revenue of around $210 million over five years, and brings the total value of key strategic contracts awarded (including new wins) during March 2017 to more than $330 million.
Spotless has been providing cleaning, food, ancillary, ward support, grounds and gardens maintenance, pest control, hygiene services and security services at The Alfred Hospital for more than 12 years (the contract commenced May, 2004).
The more than 580-bed hospital houses one of Australia’s busiest emergency and trauma centres, Victoria’s largest intensive care unit, and the only adult burns centre in Victoria and Tasmania.
Spotless’ executive general manager, health and PPP’s Stephen McIntyre said: “We are delighted to continue our long-standing relationship with The Alfred to deliver consistently high quality non-clinical services that meet the 24/7 requirements of one of Australia’s most significant health facilities”.
Renewal and expansion of the Healthscope contract will see Spotless continue to provide integrated linen rental and laundry services at 31 of Healthscope’s existing hospital facilities, plus 10 additional locations around Australia.
Spotless’ linen rental and laundry services for Healthscope include sheeting, pillow slips, blankets, bedspreads, surgical packs, scrub suits and patient gowns. The services will be delivered from seven Spotless laundries across the country.
Harley Oaten, Spotless executive general manager, laundries, said: “We are very pleased to be able to continue supporting Healthscope as they provide quality healthcare to thousands of Australians every day.”
It follows a takeover announced by Downer EDI last week for $1.2 billion.
Grant Fenn, Downer CEO, said: “The acquisition of Spotless is a significant investment in Downer’s strategy to expand its capabilities and strengthen its position as a leading provider of services to customers in Australia and New Zealand.”
