Mercy’s Supply Chain Innovation Recognized in Global Ranking

November 29, 2021

For the 13th consecutive year, Mercy has been ranked by Gartner, Inc. as a Top 10 global supply chain in health care. Mercy landed at No. 5 on the Gartner Healthcare Supply Chain Top 25 for 2021 - the only health system to consistently rank in the top 10 since the rankings began.

In the latest report, Mercy's high peer and analyst scores helped solidify its standing alongside Cleveland Clinic, Banner Health, Ochsner Health System and Baylor Scott & White Health. Among the Mercy highlights:

  • Greater focus on patient care alignment
  • Nurse satisfaction, increased efficiency and greater productivity
  • Foundational improvements in barcoding and inventory

"We rarely call out individuals in the annual health care supply chain ranking, but it is also rare that the CEO of a health system has deep supply chain roots," the report states. "Lynn Britton, arguably the founder of ROI, attributed $1 billion in savings to supply chain over his history with the organization. Britton retires this year as Mercy’s CEO, leaving a legacy many followed on their path to maturity and developing many leaders in supply chain who still operate in the industry."
