Philips Honored With Prestigious Respiratory Industry Excellence Award At AARC International Respiratory Congress

ANAHEIM, Calif., Nov. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA) today announced it has earned the prominent Zenith Award for a 15th time from the American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC). Philips is one of just six companies to receive the award that honors excellence in products and service for the respiratory industry. The 2013 award was presented November 16 at the 59th International Respiratory Congress in Anaheim, CA. Philips was chosen to receive the award from more than 400 suppliers, based on selection from over 52,000 AARC members, comprised of clinicians and researchers who use respiratory care equipment, devices and pharmaceutical products.

"The Zenith Award is evidence of our dedication to creating the future of healthcare by developing innovations – partnering with clinicians - to improve patient care, provide better value, and expand access to care  from the hospital to the home," said Randall Whitfield, general manager, Hospital Respiratory Care, for Philips Healthcare.  

Philips Respironics provides a wide variety of complementary product offerings in the area of respiratory care, including invasive and noninvasive ventilation, a full portfolio of stationary and portable oxygen equipment, nebulizers and products for respiratory drug delivery, as well as sleep diagnostic and therapy solutions. From November 16-19 at the AARC 2013 Congress, the largest respiratory care meeting in the world, Philips will showcase its latest respiratory innovations, including a complete portfolio of therapy masks, services and support for improved patient care. Every day, Philips Healthcare's respiratory solutions improve the lives of millions of patients suffering from diseases such as obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). For respiratory care professionals, Philips products are trusted solutions that lead to healthier patients and healthier practices.

Established in 1989, the AARC's awards program honors respiratory care product and service providers who exemplify outstanding service to the respiratory care community. The recipients recognized with the Zenith Award are distinguished for the quality of their equipment and/or supplies, accessibility and responsiveness of sales personnel, service record, truth in advertising and their support of the respiratory care profession.
