Choose Dempsey and enjoy three unique benefits:
Highest Laundry Certification
Do you know who, if anyone, inspects your current laundry supplier to evaluate and ensure sanitary conditions?
At Dempsey, to support your infection control program, we’ve committed to the highest level of certification, Hygienically Clean Healthcare Certification by TRSA™. It’s the only laundry program that requires third-party bacteriological testing of linen cleanliness. We earn continued certification through quarterly testing of our products and processes, providing Dempsey customers with proof of compliance and peace of mind.
Highest Quality Products
We know your nursing staff gets frustrated when they waste valuable time searching for clean linens or, even worse, when a patient finds a stained gown first.
At Dempsey, we leverage technology, like our ProductPlus™ program, to provide quality products that improve your patient experience. We start with well-known Medline scrubs, gowns and sheets, process them with the most advanced laundry equipment, and inspect them with the most tenured team in the business. Each package of linen will be clean and usable, saving you time and money.
Lowest Total Cost
We know linen invoices can be confusing. After all, how can you control the cost when you don’t even know how many linens you are using?
At Dempsey, we leverage technologies, like our VacuTrack™ and CustomerPortal systems, to provide transparent billing that helps you reduce your linen supply cost per case. We accurately track the soiled linens you turn in - and let you view those numbers in your online Customer Portal - then, we only bill you based on your usage.

In Washington D.C., each decision regarding its location and borders has always been and still is, fraught with political significance. The United States Constitution provided for a national Capital City to be overseen by the Federal government, based partly on what happened in the so-called Philadelphia Mutiny of 1783. A band of soldiers besieged Congress over late pay for their service in the Revolutionary War, making it clear Congress couldn’t depend on its host state for security. The future site of the city, just below what would become the Mason-Dixon Line, was a concession to the South in exchange for an agreement developed by James Madison, Thomas Jefferson, and Alexander Hamilton. It stipulated that the Federal Government would pay all state debts from the Revolutionary War.
Virginia and Maryland contributed land for the creation of a Capital “not exceeding 10 miles square,” per Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution. Both states expected to see economic growth as a result of the Capital’s proximity, and while that has certainly been borne out in modern history, it didn’t happen overnight. In fact, the Anacostia River became a barrier the developing District avoided by staying on formerly Maryland side. That fact, combined with concerns over the legality of slavery, resulted in the return of the Virginia land in 1846. So, instead of inhabiting the original square parcel, the District sits on half a square with an uneven, diagonal river border.
Although the District’s population increased dramatically during the Civil War era, in 1870 most of its roads were still dirt. Some Senators proposed moving the Capital further west away from the swampy river deltas, but then-President Ulysses S. Grant resisted. Instead, he appointed District Governor Alexander Robey Shepherd, a man who launched many ambitious projects designed to improve the city, but that bankrupted it instead.
Several urban renewal projects, including the “City Beautiful Movement” in the early 1900s and the later “New Deal,” led to the construction of many new government buildings, museums, and memorials. World War II drew a huge number of eager Federal employees to the District, swelling its population to more than 800,000. Today, including thousands of commuters from outside its borders, the District employs more than a million Americans, all of whom require access to medical care.
While professional medical services within the District are abundant, the hospital most often associated with Washington D.C. is The Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, founded in 1909. Oddly, the Center isn’t even in the District. It’s in nearby Bethesda, Maryland. In 2011, the Army and Navy hospitals combined to form the tri-service Military Medical Center, a facility that serves active and retired military personnel. The biggest military medical resource in the world, it spans 243 acres and includes more than 2.4 million square feet of clinical space, 5,500 rooms, and a staff of approximately 7,100. The Center cares for more than a million service persons each year. Dempsey Uniform & Linen Supply provides medical linen rental services and uniform rentals to an ever-expanding number of healthcare and wellness facilities in Washington D.C., Maryland, and the surrounding Mid-Atlantic region, including the Washington Surgical Clinic, Holistic Industries of Washington DC, and Oral Surgery DC.
