A rapidly growing organization with pending acquisitions on the horizon, RCCH HealthCare Partners relies on its supply chain department to keep its well-oiled machine running. 

The Brentwood, Tenn.-based healthcare group operates 16 regional health systems in 12 states and has more than 14,000 employees and 2,000 affiliated physicians and mid-level providers. 

“We have acquired many independent and national chain facilities and all of them present a unique challenge in the integration of a common supply chain platform,” says Brian Hitchcock, vice president of material resource operations. “We have two potential acquisitions pending and we are continually looking to grow.”

“Supply chain put us on the map and made us the largest company of our kind in terms of footprint and network,” Executive Vice President of Operations Dipesh Pattni says. “Our suppliers know we are not going to accept things status quo and that we’re on the leading edge when it comes to thought processes and strategies.”

When it comes to embracing new technology, BJC HealthCare is at the forefront of innovation. The healthcare service provider, which operates 15 hospitals in Missouri and Illinois, is in the process of revamping its supply chain by implementing a new radio frequency identification (RFID) system for inventory management.

“Other industries have used this technology for decades, but healthcare has not,” says Steve Kiewiet, the vice president of supply chain management who has served as interim co-chief supply chain officer for the past year. “We are on the forefront of end-to-end supply visibility.”
