Saluting Sterile Processing Leaders
Healthcare Purchasing News has recognized and honored materials management leaders, focusing on department directors and key executives between 1986 and 2000. In 2004, however, HPN expanded the honor to the annual “Materials Management Department of the Year” award, which acknowledges the dedication of the entire staff for effective and efficient supply management. We salute those men and women we’ve profiled in the past, many of whom have since changed jobs or retired, as well as the noteworthy hospitals with top-notch teams.

Some forward-thinking Surgical Services teams are narrowing the gap between revenues and expenses within their facilities. Might that be your team?
