In January of 2021, UMMS launched a partnership with Medline as its System-wide supply chain distribution vendor to continue our One UMMS journey. Medline, the market-leading supply chain vendor, has partnerships with more than 40 percent of the top 150 health care institutions in the United States.
Medline owns its entire distribution channel, which means it can very effectively and efficiently get us the right resources at the right location at the right time. This ensures our providers have the resources they need at the time that they need them to deliver care, which is critical.
Our partnership with Medline will improve our ability to serve the needs of both our patients and our community and will improve the way we deliver hiqh-quality, compassionate care.
