Medfusion® 3500 Pumps Working Very Close to Home

Dean, a senior manufacturing technician, has worked on the Medfusion® 3500 pumps to make them the best on the market.

In January of 2011 Dean saw a Medfusion® pump in real-life action when he was blessed with two beautiful granddaughters. One had a respiratory problem and was transferred to a specialist hospital. The ambulance used for the transfer had an incubator and four Medfusion® 3500 pumps. Dean was thrilled to see the pumps being used to help his new granddaughter during her transfer.

Medfusion® 3500 PumpsDean was pleased to hear how the nurses were happy with the Medfusion® pumps, and he proudly answered their questions. Both girls were released from the hospital soon after in excellent condition.

At Smiths Medical there is an abundance of opportunities for growth & development in your career, below are some employees' stories..

We asked some of our valued employees how Smiths Medical has helped their careers, and how they have improved and progressed since joining the company...

Wendy, Production CoordinatorSince I have been with Smiths Medical I have been to Supervision 1 & 2 classes, the Train the trainer class, Mistake Proofing class and have received my Six Sigma Green Belt.

Sarah, Marketing ManagerSmiths Medical has provided guidance and financial support to further education. I embarked on a Professional Certificate in Marketing, the course gave me the knowledge and a new exposure to business as a whole.

Chris, Director | Product ManagementI joined Smiths Medical as an Associate Product Manager in 2006 and am now a Director of Global Product Management. The opportunity to work in different franchises across regional marketing and global product management has allowed me to learn best practices to make the organization more effective in the future. Today I am integrating this experience into our new product development and commercialization activities for our customers and regional teams around the world.

Peter, Business Analyst | Clinical InnovationI was given a great opportunity to participate in the Smiths Group Horizons program. This is a 2 year program focused on accelerating leadership potential from within the business. The exposure across the whole of Smiths that followed broadened both my knowledge and capabilities and helped me to achieve a new role.

Alison, Director | Customer ServicesSmiths has helped me develop as an individual, giving me a lot more confidence in my management style and approach. I do feel that I have learnt to make hard and difficult decisions, which I would have shied away from before joining Smiths. I have travelled extensively with Smiths, developing my appreciation and understanding of different cultures across the world. I have been given the opportunity to mentor and coach individuals and I have seen many people grow and develop their own careers!
