Nissan Helps Hospitals Too
Nissan News | Nissan's ‘shot in the arm' for healthcare sector
It's not just Toyota working with the Toyota City hospital or GM helping the University of Michigan hospital…
Now Nissan is helping a hospital in the UK:
And the number of steps used in patient treatment have been reduced from 29 to 11 after Nissan suggested unnecessary, duplicated checks could be removed.
Now, the hospital is looking to extend the partnership, and its ward managers are undergoing training that Nissan usually reserves for its manufacturing apprentices.
David Hambleton, divisional director for surgery at the hospital, said: “We've got the most productive car plant in Europe on our doorstep. We thought: “Why shouldn't we work with the people at Nissan?”
If you're a good lean manufacturing company, maybe there is a hospital in your community that you could be helping?
