    Abstract

    Linen is a backstage service that is critical for a hospitalís functioning. Our team created a refill and distribution system to optimize linen use at the VA Boston Healthcare System-West Roxbury Campus, by applying lean concepts to improve process efficiency with the goal of providing the best patient care. A trial implementation was conducted to evaluate the feasibility and efficiency of the design and to inform recommendations for future implementation of the project.
