Sharps Compliance Corp. (NASDAQ: SMED) (“Sharps” or the “Company”), a leading full-service national provider of comprehensive waste management solutions including medical, pharmaceutical and hazardous, has announced the appointment of TRUST member Sharon Gabrielson to its Board of Directors.

Sharon Gabrielson is a progressive health care executive with over 30 years of broad-based leadership experience in the health care industry.  She currently serves as Chair of Global Business Solutions for the Mayo Clinic, where she is responsible for directing domestic and international business development opportunities for the Clinic’s health care products and services to the B2B and B2C markets. Previously, Sharon was Vice Chair of Mayo’s Health System Administration, where she oversaw an organization of community-based practices including hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, and home health, which generated approximately $2 billion in revenues. She led the design and implementation of the Mayo Model of Community Care, transforming care delivery models to optimize quality and outcomes and maximize reimbursement. Earlier at Mayo Clinic, Sharon held a leadership role as Section Head of the Division of Systems and Procedures, the company’s management engineering and internal consulting function. Prior to Mayo Clinic, Sharon served in various positions with the Olmsted Medical Center and LifeSource Upper Midwest Organ Procurement Organization. She began her career as a registered nurse.

She has served on numerous leadership and management committees at Mayo Clinic, as well as industry boards including for-profit public and private, as well as not-for-profit and community organizations. She currently serves as an independent director for Catasys (NASDAQ: CATS) and is a member of the nominating/governance and audit committees. She is also an advisory board member for CyberMdx and Strategic Partners (SPI), Inc., assisting as they scale for growth in the health care market. Sharon is a member of the Women's Health Leadership TRUST Board of Directors as well as co-chair of the TRUST Programming Committee.

Philip Zerrillo, Chairman of Sharps’ Board of Directors, commented, “We are very pleased to announce Sharon’s addition to our Board.  She is a true leader and innovator in the healthcare industry, with extensive and relevant experience in the healthcare marketplace.  Her broad experience at Mayo Clinic — one of the most respected healthcare organizations in the world — should prove to be very valuable to Sharps as we bring our unique solutions to a broader base of customers across the country.”

Sharon commented, “Sharps Compliance is at a unique point in its growth and I’m excited to become a part of this dynamic organization. Sharps is well positioned in two growing markets, the $1 billion medical waste market and the $1 billion unused medication disposal market, and is at an inflection point in its development with significant potential to become a much larger company in years to come.  The Company’s medical waste solution for small to medium sized generators has been enhanced with the expansion of its route-based capabilities and I look forward to working with management to execute strategies designed to capture additional market share. Furthermore, the Company’s unused medications solution provides a cost-effective method designed to address an ongoing and tragic situation in our country.
