UHC, an alliance of the nation’s leading nonprofit academic medical centers and their affiliated hospitals, honored Greenville Health System with the Supply Chain Performance Excellence Award and Supplier Diversity Leadership Award at its annual conference last week.
The UHC Supply Chain Performance Excellence Award recognizes high-performing organizations in supply chain management as measured by the Supply Chain Performance Excellence Collaborative Study. The study analyzes data from the UHC Operational Data Base to measure supply utilization at the facility level and across select clinical service areas.
The Supplier Diversity Leadership Award honors a UHC member organization for an outstanding supplier diversity program and a demonstrated commitment to supporting the growth of minority-, women-, and veteran-owned businesses.
For nearly 30 years, UHC has been a catalyzing force in supporting academic medical centers (AMCs) in their efforts, fostering new ideas and building solid relationships that withstand the test of time. Its members have been agents of progress—driving the advancement of patient care, medical knowledge, and fiscal acuity by coming together to candidly discuss their ideas and vision.
