Supply chain management provides oversight of all purchasing, procurement and vendor contracting for UC Health. Our mission is to select suppliers and service providers that adhere to the highest standards of quality, safety, service and price.
UC Health has a strong commitment to supplier diversity and economic inclusion, which our department oversees. We are committed to future success with this program and seek bids from qualified vendors as the need arise. This initiative ensures a competitive, inclusive process and contributes to the economic growth and stability of our region.
Supply chain management is responsible for more than 700 contracts system-wide. As a system, UC Health represents a best-practice in the country for contract compliance and time to implementation among the 700 hospitals represented by MedAssets, our group purchasing organization (GPO). We add value to UC Health and its hospitals by evaluating every service provider and supplier to ensure they provide the best quality, safety and service at the best possible price.
The intake process for all potential UC Health suppliers begins with its centralized purchasing department, managed by Broadlane.
Broadlane identifies opportunities for cost savings while maintaining our high standards of quality, safety, service and price. As part of this organization, we can take advantage of the purchasing power of more than 700 hospitals across the country.
