University of Utah Health announced it has been named by Vizient as a 2018 Top Performer in the Sourcing and Resource Management in the Supply Chain Management Excellence Award category. University of Utah Hospital was one of ten Vizient member hospitals chosen for their innovative project or initiative that improved supply chain performance in the last 12 to 18 months.

“This award demonstrates University of Utah Health’s commitment to continuous improvement. It is another great example of how health systems are working to provide the most cost-effective care for their patients and we are proud to recognize their achievement,” said Jody Hatcher, president sourcing and collaboration services for Vizient.

“Vizient has recognized University of Utah Health’s commitment to implementing new programs that our organization can embrace. These programs drive savings and standardization, as well as improve customer service for our employees,” said Brian Pollick, Administrative Director Supply Chain Management for University of Utah Health. “We are proud of the success of this initiative.”
