Procurement Services: Goals

The University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics Department of Procurement Services shall serve its customer groups and hospital administration with two defining goals around which, all projects and efforts shall focus:

  • Enhancing and improving the patient experience while at the same time, increasing the UI Hospitals & Clinics operating margin. Whether through "hard savings," "soft savings," or revenue enhancement and creation, we will always define our success by our ability to increase the operating margin.
  • Through increases in UI Hospitals & Clinics operating margins, we hope to assist in the increase of capital reserves. Increases in these reserves will enable UI Hospitals & Clinics to continue the cycle of improvement and enhancement of the patient experience.
