St. Onge Company's Sean O'Neill recently published an article in Healthcare Purchasing News. The article, entitled "Consolidated Service Centers a viable strategy," discusses how healthcare supply chains have become more complicated and decentralized in recent years, and how CSCs can help with these challenges. Sean details specifically how CSCs are helping healthcare providers today, and how to evaluate if a CSC is right for you.

"As engineering consultants actively involved in this emerging environment, we see more newly formed, as well as expanding, hospital systems creating or expanding CSCs to leverage scale and save costs. This is driven by a number of factors including hospital consolidation, campus expansion, supply chain strategy, quality and work standardization, service level improvement, labor availability, hospital space constraints, risk mitigation, and regulatory issues (e.g., California’s OSHPD). We believe that cost pressures and consolidation will continue to push systems in this direction."
