Bolstering its commitment to improve its clinical and operational performance, the NCH Healthcare System
, a not-for-profit, two-hospital health system based in Naples, Fla., has joined VHA Inc
., the national health care network. “VHA has the potential to provide NCH with supply chain opportunities to reduce costs while maintaining or improving quality outcomes that NCH might not be able to achieve on its own,” said Allen S. Weiss, MD, president and CEO of NCH. In addition to membership in VHA, NCH will also be a member of the Upper Midwest Consolidated Service Center, a VHA Supply Network of members who have come together collaboratively to pursue enhancements to existing supply chain opportunities whenever possible.
