Abbott Northwestern Hospital
I've worked with Mark Delebo and Culligan for roughly the past 12 years and I have been very pleased with the reliability of the water purification equipment they provide as well as the level of customer service.
We utilize Culligan's incoming water treatment services in a variety of ways including softeners, reverse osmosis for dialysis systems and a number of other laboratory water applications. As you can imagine, clean water in a hospital setting is a critical deliverable that has the potential to adversely affect the lives of our patients. Abbott Northwestern Hospital simply cannot afford to ask just anyone to take care if its incoming water treatment needs.
We believe strongly that Culligan has the sterling reputation and proven history of service that our hospital – and virtually any hospital – requires.
Culligan, and their incoming water treatment technologies, has done a fine job of handling our facility’s strict water quality needs. I've worked with Culligan, and Mark Delebo specifically, for the last 12 years and intend on working with them for the forseeable future.

I've worked with Jay McNab and Culligan for roughly the past 15 years and I have been very pleased with the reliability of the water purification equipment they provide as well as the level of customer service. The water is used in critical production processes that require a continous and uninterrupted source of quality water. The Woodridge Technology Center manufacturers the pyrolytic carbon used in the St. Jude Medical® mechanical heart valve.
The pyrolytic carbon used in heart valves is a specialized form of nonporous, high-wear resistant and high-strength carbon. When implanted in a human body, pyrolytic carbon has inherent qualities that make it compatible with human tissue and reduce the risk of blood clots forming on or around the valve.
The Woodridge Technology Center is a 180,000 square foot facility that was designed with state-of-the-art technologies. Over the last 30 years, St. Jude Medical has manufactured over two million of these devices that have been implanted into patients with heart valve problems.
Culligan, and their incoming water treatment technologies, has done a fine job of handling our facility’s strict water quality needs. I’ve worked with Culligan, and Jay McNab specifically, for the last 15 years and intend on working with them for the forseeable future.
