2018 Winner: San Antonio Regional Hospital

  • Only one year ago, San Antonio Regional Hospital’s supply chain team was struggling to load local contracts into their system. Today, through a combination of new supply chain leadership and applying GHX solutions for e-procurement, data cleansing and contract pricing, they have made significant progress toward reigning in spend and driving more on-file contract purchasing. 

  • San Antonio Hospital now ranks in the GHX Top 50. A key reason for their success comes from greater control over radical spending, which helps drive compliance and transmission of perfect orders.
