What does the acquisitions team do and how does that help our clients?
As part of the acquisitions team, I work with facilities to provide cost recovery on their overstock items. A surplus can occur from situations such as product conversions, surgeons leaving, or product preference changes. By utilizing WestCMR, hospitals and surgery centers are keeping excess items out of landfills while also receiving a monetary return.
Before you started working at WestCMR, what did you think happened to surgical supplies sitting in hospital stock rooms if they were never used? What surprised you most about the surplus surgical supplies issue?
Prior to working at WestCMR, I assumed that manufacturers would make it easy for facilities to keep low stock levels and allow them to purchase products as needed. I was unaware that facilities keep an expansive inventory on hand, with limited opportunity to exchange with manufacturers.
Shine a spotlight on a fellow WestCMR employee. How does he or she exemplify WestCMR’s corporate values and mission?
