Stocks in this article: KMB

ROSWELL, Ga., May 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Kimberly-Clark today announced it was named overall supplier of the year and awarded the second annual Mark McKenna award by Novation, a leading health care supply chain expertise and contracting company for the members of VHA, UHC, Children's Hospital Association and Provista LLC.

The Mark McKenna award recognizes the company's outstanding service to Novation's Alliance members in 2012 and celebrates Mark McKenna's legacy of putting hospitals and patients first. McKenna, who passed away in 2011, served as the president and CEO of Novation from 1999 through 2006.

"Kimberly-Clark is dedicated to providing the members Novation serves with superior service as well as economic and clinical value," said Joanne Bauer, President, Kimberly-Clark Health Care.  "We value our long-standing relationship with this important partner and are most appreciative of this recognition, especially the prestigious Mark McKenna award, which speaks to our number one priority, the people we serve – our customers and their patients."  

In addition to being named overall supplier of the year, Kimberly-Clark was also recognized as medical-surgical supplier of the year and won the compliance & integrity award. The medical-surgical supplier of the year is recognized by the Novation Awards Committee from among those companies with significant growth year-over-year, that are fully engaged and invested with Novation and the Alliance staff, are compliant with national contract terms, continually work with Novation to bring forth differential value for members, and are in strategic alignment with Novation. The compliance and integrity award is a member-selected award to the supplier who has the highest reputation for integrity and most closely aligns to our collective ethical supplier standards.  Further, this award recognizes other criteria such as proven compliance with laws and regulations, the avoidance of conflicts of interest and alignment with Novation's Supplier Standards.
