Abbott recently received three awards for its initiatives to reach operational excellence at its diagnostics manufacturing facility in Longford, Ireland, which creates tests that laboratories and hospitals around the world use.
The facility received the Shingo Prize, which is an international award for operational excellence. It is awarded by the Shingo Institute based at the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business at Utah State University.
"Our overall mission at Abbott is to advance human health in everything we do, enabling people to not just live longer, but better,” Brian Blaser, executive vice president for diagnostics products at Abbott, said. “In diagnostics, we do this by helping doctors diagnose and monitor a wide range of health conditions with greater speed, accuracy and efficiency. I want to congratulate the team at our manufacturing facility in Longford as receiving the top Shingo Prize is a testament of their deep commitment to serving the people who benefit from our products."
The other two top national awards were the Medtech Company of the Year award for innovative methods to improve service and product development, and the National Business Excellence Award for outstanding ways of transforming and growing an organization.
"Abbott is delighted to have received these three prestigious awards on behalf of all our employees,” Ciaran Corcoran, Longford site director for diagnostics at Abbott, said. “Through a relentless focus on world-class performance, our organization has been able to deliver truly outstanding and sustainable results for our customers and the patients that we serve. We are proud to be honored in such a way."
