Louisville, CO — Wednesday, May 26, 2021

Global Healthcare Exchange (GHX) announced the recipients of its 20th annual GHXcellence Awards at this year’s virtual GHX Summit LIVE event today. GHX reinvented the awards program this year in recognition of the providers, suppliers and individuals that went above and beyond to support patients and communities during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as for exhibiting healthcare supply chain excellence.

“We are proud to spotlight so many examples of providers and suppliers that stepped up in exemplary ways the past year,” said Bruce Johnson, CEO of GHX. “These leaders set the tone for what a value-driven healthcare supply chain should operate like – one that’s grounded in collaboration, servant leadership and innovation. It is an honor to recognize and reward their achievements.”

“Relentless and resourceful were healthcare’s watchwords of 2020, and the submissions for this year’s GHXcellence awards showcase the variety of inspirational ways leading providers and suppliers worked together to serve their communities even during the pandemic’s most challenging days,” said Mike Schiller, senior director of Supply Chain for the Association for Health Care Resource and Materials Management (AHRMM) and a member of the GHXcellence Selection Committee.

GHX selected the 2020 GHXcellence winners based on a combination of strategic performance metrics. Winners were chosen by a committee made up of GHX executives and healthcare influencers including Mr. Schiller, Nancy LeMaster, CEO, Nancy J. LeMaster Consulting, Carol Stone, former vice president, Corporate Marketing, C.R. Bard and former founding GHX board member, and Rick Dana Barlow, co-founder and executive director of the Bellwether League Foundation and senior editor, Healthcare Purchasing News. Due to the volume of excellent submissions and the diversity of stories GHX received this year, the GHXcellence Selection Committee broke the Innovation Award into three sub-categories to better divide the focus on organizations’ COVID-19 response, approach to improving critical business processes and use of GHX solutions.
