We approach you, your organization and your people with the time and attention – and expertise – you deserve.
The people-focused support services experts.
We take a people-first approach to all that we do, because it’s people – not just numbers and bottom lines – that make support services successful. The Kestgo team has spent decades helping healthcare systems, hospitals, and other organizations that include large institutions, higher education and corporate dining simplify and manage the complexities of hospitality services, environmental services, and more.
Profitability, peace-of-mind, employee
engagement, and satisfied patients
Kestgo makes it possible. Countless organizations have benefitted from our unique people-first approach to healthcare support services.
When the right employees are supporting the operations of your hospital, patients are more satisfied, more loyal, and are more likely to return to - and advocate for - your organization.
We understand that support services have an extremely high bearing on your organization’s reputation and ultimately profitability.
We help you make key decisions that are laser-focused on driving favorable outcomes, including patient satisfaction and profitability.
Our people-first approach not only guides how we help you select and manage vendors and employees, it also informs how we treat and work with our clients.
We’re responsive, proactive partners that support our clients in immeasurable ways.
