Supply Chain Services

The Supply Chain Services department at Knox Community Hospital maintains the continuity of supply to support the operation of the hospital.

The following are some of the services we provide.

  • purchasing, receiving, storing and issuing all supplies necessary for maximum patient care
  • information and advice regarding market conditions, product developments, cost and value analysis and the probable effect of these factors upon the operations of the hospital

Our purchases are based on value, recognizing that value represents the combination of quality, service, and cost that assure the greatest ultimate economy to the customer, our patients.

Knox Community Hospital policy requires all company sales representatives wishing to visit any department to first register at the kiosk outside the Supply Chain Services office. After you have registered, our staff will contact the department you desire to visit. You are expected to register regardless of approval or pre-arranged appointments.

Knox Community Hospital is a managed affiliate of QHR and a member of Healthtrust Purchasing Group (HPG). We request all vendors soliciting business acknowledge and honor our GPO status and commitment.
