Managing healthcare costs and improving operational performance through effective supply chain management has earned Catholic Health its fifth consecutive recognition as a “Best 50” provider for supply chain excellence. Presented by Global Healthcare Exchange (GHX), a healthcare business and data automation company, the annual “Best 50” award spotlights the top hospitals and health systems in North America whose commitment to supply chain automation drives quality and efficiency to enhance patient care and achieve cost savings.

“This is truly a great accomplishment for our purchasing team, especially during a year that was so challenging for the supply chain community,” said Brian Hackford, Vice President of Supply Chain Management for Catholic Health. “This recognition is the result of the continued hard work and dedication of everyone across our system who ensures we have the supplies we need, when we need them, while being responsible stewards of our resources.”

Honorees are selected from a pool of more than 4,100 provider organizations across North America using leading supply chain metrics. GHX helps automate and eliminate manual supply chain processes to produce greater efficiencies and improve service.   

“Every year, GHX honors a select group of providers that are setting a high bar for healthcare supply chain excellence,” said Bruce Johnson, president and CEO, GHX. “This year’s honorees stand out given how immensely challenging COVID-19 was for the global healthcare supply chain. Catholic Health showed an especially deep commitment and innovative approach to removing waste, driving efficiencies and raising the quality of patient care when it was even more critical.”
