Ranked by U.S. News & World Report as the number one hospital in California – and among the top six in the country – UCSF Health is committed to providing the most rewarding work experience while delivering the best care available anywhere. In an environment that allows for continuous learning and opportunities for professional growth, UCSF Health offers the ideal atmosphere in which to best use your skills and talents. Job Summary Under the direction of the OR Supply Chain Management Team, the Surgical Supply Specialist (SSS) is responsible for the overall management of mission critical surgical supplies in the Medical Center's perioperative and perianesthesia areas. The SSS must have excellent organizational skills, and must be able to effectively prioritize and execute critical job functions with minimal supervision and a high degree of autonomy. The SSS must have excellent interpersonal and customer service skills, as s/he will be partnering with a variety of clinical and technical staff to accomplish the following: be completely prepared for both scheduled and emergency procedures across multiple Bay Area campuses that collectively perform ≥ 100 cases per day; source surgical supplies and proactively manage logistics from hundreds of vendors worldwide; create physical and systemic supply locations as necessary; use a variety of integrated data management platforms to understand and articulate supply costs, usages, variances, and trends; regularly optimize on-hand inventories, making decisions informed by analyzing usage histories, identifying and anticipating trends, and working with clinical staff to understand clinical application; review Epic / APeX generated preference cards to validate existing inventory of specified supplies, as well as inventory locations; utilize relationships with vendor representatives, supply chain staff at other UC campuses and affiliates, and supply chain staff at other Bay Area hospitals (non-UC) to source surgical supplies in critically urgent scenarios; and attend and participate in new product approval committee meetings.
