Our mission is to advance the supply chain professional in the healthcare industry.

Our Role in TMC

The Texas Medical Center is the largest medical center in the world with one of the highest densities of clinical facilities for patient care, basic science, and translational research. Located in Greater Houston, the center contains 50 medicine-related institutions, including 15 hospitals and two specialty institutions, two medical schools, four nursing schools, and schools of dentistry, public health, pharmacy, and other health-related practices. All 50 institutions are not-for-profit. The center exceeds one thousand acres (or 1.562 square mile) in size. Some member institutions are located outside of the city of Houston. The Center is where one of the first and largest air ambulance services was created and where one of the first successful inter-institutional transplant programs was developed. More heart surgeries are performed in Texas Medical Center than anywhere else in the world.

The Texas Medical Center receives 160,000 daily visitors and over seven million annual patient visits, including over 18,000 international patients. In 2011, the center employed over 106,000 people, including 20,000 physicians, scientists, researchers and other advanced degree professionals in the life sciences.

Chapter Presentations

A Word from the President

Did you know that supply chain is the second largest and fastest growing expense for healthcare providers today?  As healthcare reform push hospitals to find new ways to maximize resources and focus on outcomes, supply chain professionals are being depended on to find smart solutions.  This organization’s mission is to advance the supply chain professional, and we must do it to survive!  That is why it is very important to network, learn from each other, and continue to explore better ways to serve our patients.  I believe that the core of our working relationships center on our compassion for people and service. I truly believe that the healthcare industry is in need of individuals with character that understand the benefits of working smart.

    I am appreciative of the confidence that each of you have placed in me to lead this chapter.  It is my honor to serve the healthcare supply chain community and be a driving force for advancement in technologies and methodologies in this industry.  Thank you in advance for your support in this new journey.
