This year’s event theme was “Mentoring Healthcare Leadership Talent.”

Since 1998. the Association of Hispanic Healthcare Executives (AHHE) has been the premier leader for Hispanic/Latinos seeking to advance themselves to management and C-suite leadership positions in the healthcare and hospital sectors. Unitex, a leader in the healthcare laundry industry, was chosen as the recipient of this award for the job opportunities they provide to Hispanic employees at all levels of the organization and for the support they are proud to give to Hispanic communities across the Northeast.

Unitex has a history of working closely with the underserved communities in and around the areas where their laundry processing plants are located. The diversity of their workforce is a real strength for the company and has been an integral part of their growth and success.  Several of Unitex’s Hispanic employees have risen to senior management level positions within the company.
