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.

Dean Wilkes Warehouse and Logistics Lead, Langley Fulfullment Centre
