Get To Know Us

Who We Are

EcoBrite was founded in 2015 to provide an outsourced laundry solution for the long term care industry. While the majority of hospitals outsource their laundry in Northern Illinois, only about 5% of nursing homes were outsourcing. The two primary reasons were; a preconception that it is too costly, and the lack of providers that were focused on this market. For the typical hospital laundry provider, a nursing home is an afterthought and the lack of interest showed in the pricing and service.

Our Added Value


Laundry operations are heavy consumers of water, chemicals, electricity and natural gas. In a plant setting, the utilization factors are drastically less.


The quality standard achieved in a plant setting is higher due to economies of scale allowing for superior equipment, stain management removal, and easy linen replacement.


Offsite laundry operation eliminates maintenance expenses and hassle.


Productivity per man-hour in our plant is substantially higher than in a nursing facility. Assembly line operations along with equipment automation significantly reduce labor costs


Fewer personnel means less management. The entire linen/laundry operation is removed from the facility management.


With completely outsourced linen and laundry, the facility can recapture use of the laundry space for other purposes.


Ongoing usage and cost reports will enable facilities to control and manage costs.


In-house laundry costs (like most costs in the skilled nursing care industry) are calculated on a PPD (patient per day) basis.
