Régine Villain, Ochsner Health chief supply chain and support services officer, said Medline is a trusted partner, with the ability “to really focus” and meet evolving customer needs.
“We’re all about our patients, right? And so, we need to know that our partners also think like that,” said Villain. “Even though Medline is an international entity, they in many ways act like a small company; small in that you can get something done very quickly. I have a direct line into some of the top executives at Medline. It’s a matter of a phone call. ‘Hey, you know what, we need X, Y and Z,’ and they’re on it. It takes them very little time to turn things around.”
A ‘good neighbor’
Nick Latino, director of operations at the Hammond distribution center, assured local residents, officials and business leaders, that Medline “will continue to be a good neighbor.
“To our friends and neighbors, we are committed to keeping the promises we made,” said Latino. “We will continue to support local programs and projects in the community. We are the largest healthcare distribution facility in the state, and we’re committed to being an economic development partner in the region for years to come.”
