Keeping Hospitals Supplied In A Centralized Operation

October 16, 2020

Working seven days a week in Baptist Health’s Consolidated Distribution & Services Center (CDSC) in Doral, Fla., a team of 85 employees oversees the procurement, inventory and distribution of supplies essential to the daily operation of all Baptist Health hospitals, urgent care centers and other facilities, according to an article on the Baptist Health website. 

Baptist Health, which has 11 hospitals and more than 50 outpatient centers, opened the CDSC in 2014 in order to  leverage its buying power with the hundreds of vendors in its supply chain. 

All office and IT supplies for Baptist Health come through the CDSC as well, as does employee mail. 

The CDSC is also home to a full-service print shop, which coordinates the production and distribution of medical forms, patient communications, hospital signage and other items for Baptist Health. Medical records are also stored here for retrieval when needed.
