Annual Gartner Healthcare Supply Chain Top 25 list recognizes Intermountain Healthcare for initiatives to provide highest quality products and services at the lowest possible cost.
Intermountain Healthcare has reached a “Masters” designation in the annual Gartner Healthcare Supply Chain Top 25 list. The Healthcare Supply Chain Top 25 ranking and designation, recognizes manufacturers, providers, distributors and retailers from across healthcare that demonstrate leadership in improving human life at sustainable costs. After being ranked in the top five over the past seven years, Intermountain is recognized in Gartner’s new Master classification, an additional dimension of achievement. Gartner is a national business consulting company who has issued the ranking the past ten years.
Intermountain earned the Master level based on sustained supply chain performance over a period of time. Intermountain was ranked #1 on the Gartner list in 2016 and 2017 and #3 the two prior years. Intermountain’s strong bond rating, its supply chain organization’s initiatives to improve value and lower healthcare costs, the health system’s comprehensive approach to serve the patient, and innovative problem solving are among the factors to achieve the newly created title.
“Our supply chain team does an outstanding job to ensure we’re using the highest quality products and services at the lowest possible cost,” said Marc Harrison, MD, president and CEO of Intermountain Healthcare. “This team continually raises the bar in quality and affordability and demonstrates—year upon year—their commitment to making a difference for those we serve. We are honored to be on this prestigious list as a Master.”
John Wright, vice president of Supply Chain and Support Services for Intermountain, adds, “This is a humbling experience to now be ranked as a Master and a designation which I’m very appreciative. Intermountain Supply Chain leaders before me staged us for this honor long ago and I’m proud to have led us the past year to continue our work forward. Recognition of this type validates our passion and conviction within the supply chain to make a difference for our patients. I know that when we move initiatives forward, we do so with the dedication and commitment to improve value.”
