In this article the author discusses the role that supply chains can play in managing the inventories and balance sheets of hospital departments whose employees do not report to the supply chain department but spend some or all of their time on supply chain activities. He is supportive of having supply chain professionals become more involved in supply chain activities that are performed by other departments and of having supply chain departments explain their services to other departments.
