Components of Materials Management

  • Hospital Purchasing
    The Hospital Purchasing Department at University Hospital is responsible for procuring the supplies, equipment and services used throughout the facility. The Purchasing Department is authorized to issue contract and purchase orders on behalf of the hospital. We work with our customers to determine needs, identify suppliers and agree on delivery or inventory options.
  • Lawson System
    Lawson is the software used to run the Materials Management Information System (MMIS) for purchasing and inventory activities for the hospital. Lawson integrates the functions of requisitioning, purchasing, receiving and inventory control for all of the user departments.
  • Materials Management Warehouse-MMW
    Materials Management Warehouse is located at 160 Ainsley Drive, approximately 3.8 miles from the campus. All MMW orders are filled and delivered from the warehouse.
  • Central Receiving
    Central Receiving is located at the Campus West Building (CWB) on the campus. All requisition orders for the hospital, campus and research purchasing departments are received and delivered from here.
  • Central Distribution
    Central Distribution stocks patient care units with med/surg supplies on a daily basis. In addition they manage the emergency cart exchange system for the hospital.
  • Supply Chain Optimization and Process Improvement
    The Supply Chain Optimization (SCO) Team is located at Sarah Loguen Center. The scope of this team is to ensure Clinical and Procedural areas are set up with an efficient supply chain process that will reduce the amount of time clinicians handle supplies and increase time with patient care. 
  • UHCC Materials Management
