People who work in Estates and Facilities are the unsung heroes of our modern world.
They are the ones who make sure that our buildings, offices, shops and leisure centres run smoothly and efficiently. They are the ones who fix our broken toilets, clean our dirty floors, and keep our lights on. They are the ones who make sure that we have a comfortable and enjoyable experience when we use their facilities.
World Facilities Management Day is a day to celebrate the important work of these professionals. It is a day to show them that we appreciate their contributions to our society.
The Estates and Facilities Team at Mildmay is responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of the hospital's buildings and grounds and works closely with the hospital's clinical staff to ensure that our facilities meet the needs of patients and staff. We include our catering team among their number too, and so the team's work is essential to the hospital's ability to provide high-quality care to our patients.
Here are some of the specific benefits of good estates and facilities management at Mildmay:
Improved patient safety: Well-maintained facilities are less likely to have hazards that could cause injuries to patients.
Reduced infection rates: Clean and well-maintained facilities can help to reduce the spread of infection.
Improved staff morale: Employees are more likely to be happy and productive when they work in a clean, comfortable, and well-maintained environment.
Increased patient satisfaction: Patients are more likely to be satisfied with their care when they receive it in a clean, comfortable, and well-maintained environment.
Lower operating costs: Good estates and facilities management can help to reduce operating costs by identifying and fixing problems before they become major repairs.
The estates and facilities team's work is essential to Mildmay's success - thank you!
