March 12, 2013 • jpurcell

Irvine, CA – St. Joseph Hospital has recognized Fontis Solutions and the St. Joseph Health Sales Team with the 2012 St. Joseph Hospital “Friends of Materials Management” award.  Each year St. Joseph selects one vendor to recognize for their outstanding service.  Two Fontis employees, Stuart Purnell and Erika Zavadil, were singled out for their efforts.  The service provided by Stuart and Erika was presented as a model of the hallmark of partnership between supplier and client.

In presenting the award, Clyde Fulks, Manager of Materials Management stated, “Your commitment to our core values of Dignity, Excellence, Service, and Justice are central to the overall success of our mission.  The Fontis management team should be very proud of their employees.”

Over the past 19 years, Fontis Solutions has worked in close partnership with St Joseph Hospital.  This is the second time Fontis has earned the “Friends of Materials Management” distinction, and is honored to become the first vendor to be named multiple times.  From this day forward, Stuart and Erika will be recognized as alumnae of this honor and will be invited back every year to the presentation ceremony.  St. Joseph has also formally acknowledged their efforts by adding both Erika ’s and Stuart’s names to the “Friends of Materials Management Plaque of Fame” which is prominently displayed in the lobby of the Materials Purchasing department.

This recognition speaks to the professionalism and work ethic of Stuart, Erika and the entire Fontis Solutions team.  Fontis uses a dedicated team of hard working client services and sales employees to provide business printing, clinical documentation, promotional products, digital newsletters, scrub uniforms and marketing materials.   The Fontis team is dedicated to making the process of designing, procuring and distributing these marketing and business materials efficient and easy.
