Virtua Labs Receive "Laboratory of the Year" Award

Virtua’s Corporate Laboratories have been chosen as “Laboratory of the Year” by ADVANCE for Medical Laboratory Professionals. A beautifully worded nomination was submitted by Judy Topper, Laboratory Operations Manager at Virtua Voorhees, on behalf of all Virtua labs.

The ADVANCE publications determined that Virtua’s labs fulfill all of their criteria for this recognition based on endeavors and initiatives completed system-wide, bolstered by specific examples of projects completed at our Voorhees campus. Bob Neri, Virtua’s AVP of Lab Operations, was interviewed by ADVANCE for the article. The published announcement of this award coincided with National Medical Laboratory Professionals week, April 19-25, 2015.

In addition to the award, the Virtua laboratories received a $200 cash prize which they have graciously donated to Virtua Foundation Employee CARE Fund which provides one-time, confidential assistance to Virtua employees facing extreme financial hardship or crisis. Supported entirely by gifts from employees, this fund is a place to turn when life’s unpredictable circumstances become overwhelming.
