Wyoming Medical Center installs StockBox in 14 supply rooms – across the entire facility.
90% annual maintenance cost reduction, after migrating to the new system
Wyoming Medical Center is centrally located in Casper and has been serving its community since 1911, when it opened with just 35 patient beds. Today, the center covers over 700,000 square feet, with 150 physicians on staff and continues to grow.
Melissa Carpenter, Director of Material Management, and Kathy Humbracht, WMC Purchasing Manager, were looking for a solution to allow for a more efficient management of the supply room.
At the time, they were leasing an automated supply cabinet solution costing around $175,000 per year to maintain. These cabinets kept their supplies secure, but in order to even get to a low valued item, the nurses would have to first enter a keypad code and then scan the item to try to maintain a count. This slowed the staff down and due to the extra steps; the count was rarely kept up to date.
