6.29.2016

St. Onge Company's Sean O'Neill recently published an article in Becker's Hospital Review regarding consolidated service center planning and design. In his article, "Develop your consolidated service center strategy and facility design based on industry best practices," Sean discusses how the passing of the Affordable Care Act has caused a surge in health care consolidation and how to best strategize for these changes.

"The Hospital System supply chain leadership team needs to challenge the status quo and develop a CSC strategy to meet the expected institutional and system growth, which can be fluid. The team will need to leverage LEAN tools and industry best practices to develope a comprehensive understanding of material and process flows from receiving through put-away, storage, unit-based picking and ultimately to the points of care. The team should benchmark other hospitals and commerical distribution operations to understand and leverage world-class operating strategies and technologies."
