Supply Chain Management

The Supply Chain Management Department under the leadership of James P. O'Connor, Vice President, SCM, is responsible for the supply chain management continuum for Henry Ford Health System. The principal responsibility of Supply Chain Management is to represent all of Henry Ford Health System in the procurement, receipt and distribution of goods, services and capital equipment in a method that provides quality products & services, product standardization and system-wide cost savings.

Henry Ford's mission is to provide quality health care by placing "Each Patient First". Supply Chain contributes to the achievement of this mission by procuring, receiving and delivering products, equipment and services that meet or exceed the quality, safety and cost savings standards of our physicians and clinical staff across the system.

The Supply Chain Management Department has three functional areas encompassing the order-to-pay process as well as four regional areas. These areas are as follows:
