Feb. 18, 2020
Bellwether League Inc., the Hall of Fame for Healthcare Supply Chain Leadership, welcomed Nicholas “Nick” C. Toscano to its Board of Directors. Toscano, a veteran healthcare supply chain executive and Founder & CEO, Julicon Advisors LLC, was inducted into the Hall as an honoree of the Bellwether Class of 2018.

“I respect and admire that Bellwether League created a mission that recognizes the contributions of all the stakeholders in the healthcare supply chain,” Toscano said. “I believe it’s imperative to value and honor the contributions of all involved, including those from the past, present and future. I certainly understand that collaboration and knowledge transfer is a critical success factor in elevating the overall performance of the supply chain in our healthcare organizations. Bellwether League is providing an effective forum for all stakeholders.

Toscano sees Bellwether League as an effective way to demonstrate and promote critical innovation and leadership within the healthcare supply chain.

“Healthcare is currently going through an unprecedented transformation period,” he observed. “Innovation focused on quality and cost improvements is critical. It’s imperative that Industry leaders continue to develop ways to drive better products, processes and services. As we drive innovation, it must feel like we are in a race without a finish line. That sense of urgency is critical. I believe that Bellwether League and its Board of Directors has opportunities to lead and support innovation and transformation that will radically improve the experiences for all healthcare stakeholders.”

Toscano logged several decades of serving in supply chain executive leadership positions at hospitals and integrated delivery networks (IDNs) and with a leading healthcare product distributor.

“As a 2018 Bellwether inductee Nick brings a legacy of lifetime contributions, passion and commitment to advance Bellwether League’s mission and vision as the preeminent organization for recognizing Supply Chain excellence among healthcare leaders and organizations,” Gaich said. “Nick’s willingness to serve as a Board Director strengthens not only his fellow Board members, but also will serve as a catalyst to advance our thinking, carry forward our strategic efforts, and most importantly, continue to serve our industry as a trusted professional making a difference.”

Bellwether League’s 8th Annual Healthcare Supply Chain Leadership Forum will be held Monday, October 5, 2020 at The Westin-O’Hare.
