LG PH Donates to WVSU Medical Center

LG PH Donates

LG Philippines affirms its commitment to building a better community with its recent CSR initiative in Iloilo. The activity was spearheaded by LG, together with Mark Vincent Fabresis from ML Laundry Equipment and Supply and BigWash. 2 sets of Giant C Max and 2 sets of Titan C Max washers and dryers were donated to West Visayas State University Medical Center (WVSU-MC) in Region VI, modernizing their laundry facilities. The turnover event, held on July 20, 2023, was attended by representatives from WVSU-MC, LG, and BigWash, highlighting the collective effort to enhance healthcare services in the region.

LG commercial washing machines can be a game-changer for hospitals, offering numerous benefits that streamline their laundry operations and improve overall efficiency. With their advanced technology and large capacity, these machines can handle the high volume of laundry generated, including bed linens, towels, and staff uniforms.

Powering both the Giant C Max and the Titan C Max machines is LG’s Inverter Direct Drive. Unlike the traditional belt and pulley, the LG Commercial Laundry drum is directly attached to the motor providing superior durability and reliability. Fewer parts equal fewer repairs. Even with its size and large capacity, the noise of both models are also greatly reduced. Multiple dampers absorb vibration and reduce noise creating a quieter washing environment.

The washing machine donations provided tremendous help for the medical center, which serves as a laboratory for the College of Medicine, Nursing, and Dentistry.

“I was elated (of the donations). Laundry services are a backline service of the hospital. Yet it is an important service because we’re able to provide clean linens and sheets. With these donations, it will lighten the load of our personnel,” says Dr. Gelito of West Visayas State University Medical Center. Mr. Fabresis mentions that he heard about LG and BigWash’s project in one of the hospitals in Manila, he also hoped that he can do something for the Ilonggos at the WVSU.

“Both machines help keep the hospital linens fresh, crisp, and germ-free. The Giant C-Max is equipped with a two-step hygiene care laundry system. The first step ensures that our machines are sanitized before, during, and after each load, while the second step is meant to sanitize your fabrics, killing 99.99% of germs and viruses. With this technology, the day-to-day laundry operations of West Visayas State University Medical Center has been a breeze,” states Ms. Marylouie Gatuz, Product Marketing Manager for Commercial Laundry.

“It is important that we go back to one of LG’s core values, which is human-centered innovation. We chose to focus on health and hygiene because we believe that these are the two things that help the healthcare industry thrive,” shares Janille Umali, B2B Assistant Marketing Communications Manager of LG.
