Supply Chain as a Strategic Differentiator

Published in: The Journal of Healthcare Contracting


Henry Ford Health believes that everyone benefits when all businesses are afforded an opportunity to compete in the healthcare marketplace. To that end, it reinvested in its supplier diversity program, partnering closely with its strategic sourcing to ensure that diverse suppliers are identified, included, evaluated and awarded appropriately as part of the formal bid process.

“We’re one of the health systems that signed a pledge as a member of the Healthcare Anchor Network (HAN), and its multifaceted goals from supply chain to sustainability to hiring,” said Bill Moir, senior vice president of supply chain management for Henry Ford Health, and this year’s JHC Contracting Professional of the Year. “We have some lofty goals around supplier diversity which we aim to achieve through our multi-disciplinary Supplier Diversity Champions Committee.”

“This isn’t just a supply chain issue at Henry Ford, it’s an everyone issue,” he said.

Moir has served as senior vice president of supply chain management for Henry Ford Health since January 2021. His responsibilities involve overseeing all supply chain functions, including strategic sourcing, supplier diversity, purchasing, accounts payable, linen, supply chain systems and analytics, supply chain operations, and distribution and logistics.

He has held supply chain leadership roles in some of healthcare’s leading organizations such as Advocate Aurora Health, Ascension Health and Trinity Health. He is a champion for integrating supply chain management into clinical and financial outcomes and putting the stakeholders and communities he serves first.
