to keep pace with its fast growth.

Few healthcare systems around the country are growing as rapidly as St. Luke University Health Network in eastern Pennsylvania. Within the past few months, the seven-hospital health network announced plans to merge with Sacred Heart Hospital and Blue Mountain Health System, which will add three more hospitals to its system, and announced plans to build another hospital in Orwigsburg, Pa.

As one of the largest pharmaceutical companies worldwide, Sanofi takes pride in making a difference in its patients’ lives and ultimately enabling them to enjoy a healthier life.

Sanofi’s U.S. headquarters are in Bridgewater, N.J., and it employs more than 15,000 people domestically. It consists of four key businesses: Sanofi Genzyme (specialty care), Sanofi Pasteur (vaccines), Pharma (prescription drugs and generics within the diabetes cardiovascular and general medicines franchises) and Chattem (consumer healthcare division).

“We are a major healthcare provider of pharmaceuticals,” Stefan Roehr, Vice President of North American Supply Chain, says. “In 2016, we had net sales of more than $33 billion. On a global scale, we have over 100,000 employees working in more than 100 countries.”

Covenant HealthCare leans into the supply chain challenges within the facilities it operates.

With more than 100 years of history, Covenant HealthCare is an independent, locally owned and operated organization supporting multiple locations throughout mid-Michigan - this provides both advantages and challenges.

“Having to support supply chain management in an older infrastructure can be a bit of a challenge, but what I think is nice about our environment here, especially from a supply chain leader perspective, is that as an independent organization we have the ability to craft solutions with more flexibility and creativity than larger systems,” says Mike Rossi, director of supply chain for the Saginaw, Michigan-based health system.

Covenant HealthCare formed in 1998 following the merger of two long-standing local hospitals into a single entity. Both hospitals were established in the late 1800s and underwent a number of building projects and renovations in the decades before the merger.
