Jan. 21, 2011 - PRLog -- ATLANTA – MediPurpose(r), a master distributor and manufacturer of medical products, recently announced a new long-service employee award program to honor staff members that serve the company for five years or more.

The program was announced earlier this month at the company's annual event that recognizes the contributions of all staff members, as well as several key partners. This year's event was a private dinner at Sotto Sotto in Atlanta.

At the dinner, MediPurpose founder and CEO Patrick Yi saluted three MediPurpose employees for their commitment and dedication, which included:

   * Steven Yi, group CFO, with MediPurpose since 2003.

   * Cheryl Channell, customer services manager, with MediPurpose since 2005.

   * Randy Prather, president and COO, with MediPurpose since 2006.

Each was presented with a commemorative pewter plate and a cash bonus, as well as a personal statement from Yi about each honoree's history, contributions and achievements at MediPurpose.

"I am very proud of what MediPurpose has accomplished, and I'm even more enthused about what is yet to come," said Yi. "Of course, none of it would be possible without the unique combination of personal ownership, commitment to the company and honest communication that are the hallmark qualities of our staff."

Along with spotlighting each employee's individual achievements, the program was also a tribute to collective contributions from the company's first decade of operation, said Yi.

Created as a startup in 1999 as SurgiLance Pte Ltd in Singapore to support its flagship medical product, the One-Step safety lancet (now known as the SurgiLance(r) safety lancet), the company changed its name to MediPurpose in 2006.

In 2000, MediPurpose introduced SurgiLance(r) to the U.S. medical device market, the same year the U.S. Needlestick Safety and Legislation Act was passed.

In 2010, MediPurpose introduced its newest medical product line, babyLance(r) infant heel incision devices.

Other milestones from the medical device company's first 10 years include:

   * 2000: SurgiLance Inc (now known as MediPurpose Inc) established to serve U.S. customers
   * 2001: Sales top $1 million
