Last year was one of rapid change and steep challenges in healthcare. Revenue streams and supply chain needs fluctuated, and hospitals and health systems responded by seeking out strategic partnerships with their closest vendors. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Medline is on track to complete prime vendor implementations at over 40 health systems across 32 states. These new relationships reflect the evolving needs of health systems and the innovative ways Medline brings value and support.
“This pandemic is relentless and redefining normal as we know it,” says Doug Golwas, executive vice president, acute care, Medline. “To help meet the service improvements and much needed cost savings our customers expect from us, Medline continues to modify its approach. We’re ensuring that we can effectively adapt for and with system partners when it comes to our team, infrastructure, MedTrans fleet, strategic inventory and technology. I am extremely proud of the collaboration and execution between Medline and our partners during this critical time.”
