Title

Supply Chain Optimization at Evergreen Hospital

Document Type

Oral Presentation

Start Date

16-5-2013

Abstract

In 1972, Evergreen Hospital opened its doors and began servicing the greater Redmond, Woodinville, and Kirkland areas. Since then, it has expanded its capacity and grown into a major service provider in the Seattle area of Washington, specializing in cancer and cardiac care, orthopedics, maternity, and neuroscience. This case study seeks to analyze their supply chain system, specifically its purchasing system, and propose solutions that cut costs, improve efficiency, and maximize patient care. Information will be obtained through interviews with key purchasing personnel, particularly the supply chain director at the hospital. The study’s scope could potentially include the entirety of Evergreen Hospital’s supply chain management system, but will likely be narrowed down to specific purchasing functions and/or departments.
