CENTENNIAL, Colo., Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- AlloSource, one of the nation's largest non-profit providers of skin, bone and soft tissue allografts for use in surgical procedures and the world's largest processor of live cellular bone growth substitutes has been named Colorado's top healthcare company as judged by the ColoradoBiz Top Company awards program.
Last year, as it has each year for the past decade, AlloSource saved and enhanced the lives of more people in more communities than ever before through the distribution of its tissue allografts. In addition to giving back to its communities through its tissue, AlloSource distributed its excess revenues to non-profit organ procurement organizations, so they could fulfill organ and tissue donation education, as well as donor family service programs. AlloSource also dedicated itself to other activities that benefit the industry and increase awareness for tissue donation, including sponsoring industry events and education, holding leadership positions within the nonprofit organ and tissue community and leading PR efforts in support of organ and tissue donation.
"It is enormously rewarding to be recognized as the top healthcare company in Colorado during a time when we are working hard to expand the industry's offerings of allograft tissue," said Thomas A. Cycyota, AlloSource President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our success is built on collaboration and partnership: from organ procurement organization partners that help us honor the gift of donation, to medical device companies whose technology allows us to deliver innovative treatment options and health care professionals, whose skill assures positive outcomes in relieving pain, restoring mobility and saving lives."
Top Company winners were announced September 16th at an awards celebration in the Seawell Ballroom at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. In 2008 and 2009 AlloSource was a finalist in the Top Company program.
"Top Company is Colorado's most competitive business awards program, judged on the basis of sustained financial performance, operational excellence and community involvement," said Mike Cote, ColoradoBiz editor. "We congratulate AlloSource for making the grade in such a tough economic environment."
