Purchasing Directors from Hospitals Trends targets executives responsible for procuring all goods and services needed for the hospital and negotiating contracts for these products and services.
These executives must remain knowledgeable about all hospital and medical supplies and equipment. They must establish procurement processes which meet budget targets, maintain quality standards, and create a competitive negotiating environment. Purchasing officers ensure their internal customers are satisfied with their supplies, equipment, and services. They monitor their supplier’s businesses to ensure there will not be any problems acquiring necessary products, and they analyze business trends in domestic and international sourcing. These decisionmakers must be organized and detail oriented to manage staff and vendors.
These administrators are employed by hospitals that are local, state, federal, church, military or corporately owned. The officer’s daily activities vary greatly based on bed size, number of patients they care for and whether the institution is a long term acute care, physical rehabilitation, psychiatric, children’s, or general medical/surgical hospital. Purchasing administrators rely on new technology enhancements, continuing education programs, learning new managerial skills and techniques, attending trade shows, and reading medical and business journals to stay current in their field.
This target is made up of professional, intelligent, well-educated, driven, ambitious, and accomplished individuals. They typically have a masters or doctorate degree, and tend to be older and have extensive and impressive work experience. Most belong to community and professional organizations, and they are leaders, volunteers and role-models in the community. They do a considerable amount of business travel to conventions, conferences, and meetings.
