Thanks to the high-tech expertise and service-first orientation of Toshiba American Medical Services, hospitals throughout the U.S. are providing improved health care to their patients.

The Tustin-based company – which markets, sells and services a variety of diagnostic imaging systems – was given the Supplier Performance Award, which recognizes its contributions to the “clinical and financial value” of Premier, a Charlotte, N.C.-based organization owned by nonprofit hospitals.

Of the more than 800 companies contracted by Premier, only 65 were honored. To receive the award, data based on performance and satisfaction evaluations were gathered and scored over four successive calendar quarters. Organizations that scored 80 percent or higher after the statistics were calculated earned Premier’s Performance Award.

“Being recognized by Premier with the Supplier Performance Award underscores the advances in medical imaging technology Toshiba is delivering to the marketplace,” said Doug Larm, vice president of the Enterprise Business Group at Toshiba. “Toshiba develops medical imaging equipment to meet the clinical and financial demands of today’s health-care environment by supplying technology to improve patient care and diagnostic confidence while lowering overall health-care costs.”

The awards were presented yesterday at the 2010 Premier Annual Breakthroughs Conference and Exhibition, which took place at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
