The Housekeeping Staff at Scotland County Hospital are dedicated to the hospital' slogan: “caring for you when you need us” and they continue to be a very important component when it comes to patient-care and comfort.  The Housekeeping services are contracted through ServiceMaster by Lewellen's.  Should you have any comments about housekeeping, please contact Brian Price, Supervisor.

Housekeeping is responsible for maintaining the outstanding sanitary conditions you'll find at SCH, which also includes several rooms, departments, and buildings in addition to the hospital building itself.

Professionals within their own right, the housekeeping department maintains some of the cleanest rooms, hallways, emergency suites and many other departments you'll find anywhere.

When you have a facility that is open 24 hours per day, and there are patients & staff with activities of daily living going on constantly ... the term "housekeeping" takes on an entirely different connotation.

There are hundreds and hundreds of square feet of gleaming floor surfaces at SCH, Memphis Medical Services, Lancaster Medical Services, and Wayconda Medical Services, all of which are maintained by the housekeeping staff. There are specialty areas in the hospital such as the operating suites, which require a special cleaning system exclusive to surgical
procedures.  Almost all cleaning and floor & surface sterilization is unique to the hospital environment.

The days of buffing the floor and wiping down the walls has evolved into a modern technical system of sanitation with a high standard for healthcare regulations.

Daily the housekeeping department is presented with challenges that they eagerly meet, and the housekeeping staff always fulfills their obligations with a cheerful smile, and pleasant attitude.

The Scotland County Care Center/Scotland County Hospital Ladies Auxiliary purchased two new industrial strength vacuum sweepers for the Scotland County Hospital Housekeeping Department.  With the expansion of the Hospital, there will be more carpeted areas to clean and the Housekeeping Department is so pleased to have the new vacuums to accomplish the work.

The Auxiliary meets every third Monday at 1:30 p.m. at the Scotland County Care Center.  Membership dues are $1 annually and new members are always welcome.
