New Customer Testimonial

David Maffeo, Senior Director of Support Services at Boston Medical Center, sat down with me during a virtual interview to discuss the benefits of the IPA solution suite. He’s an advocate for both alEx and scrubEx and has converted nearly all of his exchange carts to alEx Linen Centers. Also, due to the success of scrubEx for scrubs, they decided to distribute N95 masks via the scrubEx dispensers. 
These testimonials are available on the homepage of the IPA website. Visit to watch the full interviews.

Employee Spotlights

Congratulations Jamie Nelinson!

Despite the obstacles that have kept us all away from our plans for this year, 2020 couldn't stop 'em! Jamie Nelinson (formally Kaplan) and her now husband Alex Nelinson tied the knot in the Historic Acres of Hershey in Hershey, PA on October 18, 2020. Although they had to postpone their wedding once due to COVID, they came up with some creative ways to still safely celebrate their love and the big day was everything they could have ever hoped for and more! 

Council of Excellence Welcomes...

This just in... Eight time Council winner, Adriene Bowen, and two time Council winner, Dana Battles, joins 15 others at Sugar Beach in St. Lucia May for the 2020 Council of Excellence annual trip.
