Major EVS Company Acquires Legion Building Services
Xanitos, a provider of hospital housekeeping, patient transport, and linen and laundry services, has acquired Legion Building Services. With this strategic acquisition, Xanitos has expanded its expertise and service offerings beyond hospital environments to include cleaning capabilities for offsite and outpatient facilities.
“By acquiring Legion Building Services, we expand our mission to help save lives into ambulatory spaces. Legion’s specialist approach will offer our healthcare partners additional solutions,” says Dave Crothall, CEO of Xanitos. “Bringing Legion into the Xanitos family is a key step forward in our mission to be the nation’s preeminent cleaning partner for healthcare organizations.”
Headquartered in New Jersey, Legion partners with leading healthcare providers in the Eastern and Central U.S. to deliver professional cleaning services at non-hospital medical buildings and offices. Legion will continue to operate as an independent entity and retain its brand name. The terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
“This acquisition brings together two companies with a like-minded approach to professional cleaning, innovation, people, and customers. The combination of Xanitos and Legion will bring greater value to our healthcare customers by offering them quality environmental services across all facility types,” says Chris Platt, VP of Operations at Legion Building Services. “We’re excited to work with Xanitos, and we look forward to growing our people and businesses together.”
