The Pembroke Regional Hospital Board has approved a resolution to move forward with a project to develop a regional supply chain for medical supplies.
During its most recent board meeting, the group authorized Pierre Noel, the president and CEO of the hospital, to act on behalf of the corporation with respect to negotiating the required agreements.
“This is all about materials management and the handling of medical supplies and goods,” Mr. Noel told the board. “Traditionally each hospital has managed their own materials handling, but that is no longer considered best practice. Now the idea is clustering hospitals into buying groups.”
