Welcome to the Website and Resource
Center of Materials Management Consultants!


We'd like to share with you some of our best strategies for managing valuable Hospital resources while reducing expenses and improving
overall productivity.

Health care executives, department directors and managers who are
looking for ways to use their resources more effectively will find many
tools and services here. This Resource Center provides:

  • Hospital-specific data to compare your operations against your peers
  • Proven strategies designed to move your Hospital's bottom line
  • A humorous, but true, collection of Materials Management Horror Stories
  • Links to other Healthcare Web Sites for additional resource information
  • Valuable tips to help you through the rough spots, and
  • Much, much more.

MMC works exclusively with Healthcare Supply Chain & Diagnostic Radiology operations improvement. We know from our work that the greatest challenge is to reduce expenses without compromising patient care. The current environment of dwindling reimbursements, managed care contracting & aggressive resource management dictate that we operate under no lesser goal.

We also happen to work with a great bunch of Healthcare Partners, all dignified individuals who are well-versed, respected and knowlegeable in their practices and disciplines. Among the very best are those dedicated professionals found at the Resource Productivity Institute.

We hope you will have as much fun cruising this Web Site as we did in creating it. Step inside, the water's fine! It'll only hurt for a little bit.
