Which hospital has the most housekeeping expenses?
New York-Presbyterian Weill Cornell Medical Center spends the most on housekeeping, with $82,056,535. At a distant second place is Tisch Hospital with $51,006,936. In third is UCSF Helen Diller Medical Center at Parnassus Heights, with $47,566,951.

This makes sense because clean medical and waiting areas are crucial in delivering high-quality patient care.
How do you calculate cleaning costs?
To calculate cleaning costs, healthcare organizations consider a variety of factors, like the number of square feet and cleaning cost per hour. Organizations may also consider the type of cleaning services required within the space—including whether it requires a “light” or “deep” clean.
Why are housekeeping services a necessary investment in healthcare?
In healthcare, use of cleaning technology and housekeeping activities, like vacuuming, mopping, and disinfecting, keep both patient and non-patient areas clean.
Hospital cleaning efforts often focus on high-touch environmental surfaces. Regularly disinfecting these areas helps kill pathogens, and as a result, reduces the rate of healthcare associated infections in hospitals.
How does hospital cleanliness impact HCAHPS scores?
HCAHPS or the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems is a survey that assesses patients’ perception of their care within a hospital. Hospital cleanliness directly affects HCAHPS scores since these scores consider how clean patients report the facility to be.
Even more, studies show that patients’ perceptions of a clean vs unclean hospital area significantly affect patient satisfaction. Unsurprisingly, patients are more likely to recommend hospitals that they view as clean.
