Spring Hill, Florida (October 23, 2018) – The associates of Oak Hill Hospital recently celebrated National Healthcare Supply Chain Week. Each year a week in October is dedicated to celebrating healthcare supply chain professionals for outstanding contributions to healthcare and the overall success of the supply chain. Sponsored by the AHRMM (Association for Healthcare Resource and Materials Management), National Healthcare Supply Chain Week provides an opportunity to recognize the integral role supply chain professionals play in delivering high-quality patient care throughout the healthcare field.
National Healthcare Supply Chain Week was celebrated from October 7-13 with the theme “Healthcare Supply Chain, Innovation Through Collaboration.” In today’s rapidly shifting healthcare landscape, hospitals and health systems are increasingly challenged to improve patient outcomes. Healthcare supply chain is uniquely positioned to connect various stakeholders across the continuum of care – no other group interacts with every major stakeholder internally and externally. It is this unique role that allows the supply chain professional to identify connections to deliver value to reduce cost, deliver efficiencies and improve the quality care for patients and communities.
Material management at Oak Hill Hospital is responsible for all deliveries in the facility managing:
- An average of 600 lines of unique items every day
- An average of 3,000 requests per month
- 27 supply rooms within the facility
The OR materials team pulls supplies for all surgical cases daily. Overall the material management team consists of 15 team members and one volunteer.
The management of Oak Hill Hospital salutes this essential core element to its organization.
