Repharm businesses recognised with a national honour for CEO Stella Lapiņa


Stella Lapiņa, Board Chair of Repharm’s subsidiaries – clinics of Veselības centru apvienība and labs of Centrālā laboratorija– has been awarded the Republic of Latvia’s Cabinet of Ministers’ Award for her contribution to the development of the healthcare sector, which is testimony to outstanding performance during the pandemic in providing solutions to the national health crisis and ensuring accessibility to medical services.

Stella Lapiņa, Board Chair of Veselības centru apvienība and Centrālā laboratorija, “Our professional teams are key for everything that we have been able to achieve during this challenging period. Thanks to each one of our employees, we have been able to contribute greatly to tackle the crisis, despite our relatively small size. The reality of the situation, which the Covid-19 pandemic has placed the development of our companies and the whole healthcare sector in, is unheard of. As a comparatively small business in a national context, we are proud that one in four vaccine doses and over 35% of Covid-19 tests conducted daily are administered by our employees. I accept this honour with enormous gratitude and pride, because it is recognition of my people who continue to work tirelessly in the conditions of the crisis. Although this is a difficult period for us, it is also an important and valuable lesson, providing us with knowledge which we will use in our further development in Latvia and as we expand across the Baltic Sea region.”

The Cabinet of Ministers’ Award is the Latvian Government’s highest honour – and the next highest nationally after the Order of the Three Stars.
