Overview

Supply Chain’s success relies on teamwork that is not unlike that in clinical areas. Each member from different business streams in Supply Chain works closely together to deliver the right products and services at the right price, to the right place, at the right time. Every link in the chain focuses on customer needs: from sourcing teams who procure supplies required for specialized care; to warehouse and logistics professionals who receive, store, and deliver supply products across the province; to in-hospital replenishment teams integrated into the clinical landscape within all B.C. hospitals; to licensed clinicians who bring their deep clinical knowledge to standardization initiatives. Our Supply Chain stands as a successful example of what collaboration and provincial focus looks like in practice.

"Almost every piece of equipment, every medication, every supply for the Lower Mainland hospitals comes through this warehouse. In our work, we often talk about ‘Mabel on the table.’ She’s the imaginary patient who’s counting on us to make sure that the clinicians providing her care have everything they need, on time, to do their jobs."

Dean Wilkes Warehouse and Logistics Lead, Langley Fulfullment Centre

My behind the scene work as a Purchasing Clerk helps to provide necessary supplies to patients and medical personnel to enable better care and recovery.
