Corewell Health Supply Chain Recognized for Excellence
Ranks high on list of Gartner Healthcare Supply Chain Top 25
GRAND RAPIDS and SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Nov. 16, 2022 – The supply chain operation at Corewell Health™, formerly Beaumont Health and Spectrum Health, has been recognized among the Gartner Healthcare Supply Chain Top 25 for 2022. Corewell Health earned the No. 3 spot.
Now in its 14th year, the Gartner Healthcare Supply Chain Top 25 rankings program identifies, celebrates and profiles examples of supply chain excellence with the goal of helping health systems build stronger supply chains for improving patient outcomes and controlling costs.
“Supply chain plays an increasingly important role in improving patient outcomes and reducing costs across the health system,” said Bill Selles, senior vice president of supply chain, Corewell Health. “I’m proud of the way our work impacts patient care, and so pleased that the team received this recognition.”
Spectrum Health ranked 6th last year and has been on the Top 25 list since 2018.
Gartner, Inc.’s ranking focuses on U.S.-based health systems and includes an environmental, social and governance measure for the first time. This year, increasing financial pressure was identified as a key challenge weighing on healthcare chief supply chain officers.
“While in years past we have seen an emphasis on cost and efficiency related to capabilities, this year is different,” said Eric O’Daffer, vice president analyst with the Gartner Supply Chain practice. “Costs are higher and margins are decreasing. The expectation is for supply chains to drive cost savings, while simultaneously adding services and increasing resiliency.”
