Medline Iberia Has Received the ‘Efficiency in the Operating Theatre’ Award
The seventh annual A Tu Salud (To Your Health) awards ceremony was organised on 26 June by the newspaper La Razón and chaired by the Spanish Minister of Health. A Tu Salud is the editorial supplement of the Planeta Group, which is dedicated to health and leading medical technology in Spain, and is published every Sunday in the La Razón newspaper. This year, La Razón celebrates its 15th anniversary.
Medline is currently the world leader in customised sterile procedure trays (SPTs), producing an average of 100,000 packs per day that can house a mix of some 25,000 components, a growing number of which are manufactured directly by Medline. This is the basis of a business model that brings together many other products and services aimed at creating efficiencies in hospital management, especially in the operating theatre. Medline’s market position combined with their growth and advancement in this strategic product line, especially in Iberia, was instrumental in winning this award.
Marta Robles, a popular Spanish TV and radio journalist, presented the ‘Efficiency in the Operating Theatre’ award to Medline Iberia at the honorary ceremony. The new Spanish Minister of Health Carmen Montón presided over the ceremony, and Madrid’s Counsellor of Health Enrique Ruiz, the Director of A Tu Salud Sergio Alonso and the Director of La Razón Francisco Marhuenda were all in attendance as well. This award recognises Medline’s dedication to efficiency and innovation, its excellent logistical services and its high-quality and environmentally friendly products.
Antonio Garcia, Sales and Marketing Director Medline Iberia, accepted the award on behalf of all Medline Iberia employees and expressed his sentiments about this honour: ‘Medline’s OR Efficiency Programme is the future. We will continue to develop an innovative and high-quality portfolio of products and services with the goal of generating efficiencies and cost savings. This award recognises everyone’s hard work on and dedication to this goal’.
A special supplement of A Tu Salud, containing a comprehensive report of the ceremony (in Spanish), was published on Sunday 1 July and also includes an article, titled Medline: eficiencia en el área quirúrgica, about Medline’s achievements, activities and future plans.
