Strong to Add Healthcare Supply Chain Expertise to Dental Supplies Startup

CHICAGO, May 3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Supply Clinic, the online marketplace for dental supplies, announced the appointment

of John Strong, founding president and CEO of Consorta, Inc. and past Senior VP of Premier, Inc., to its Advisory Board. Throughout his 40-year career, Mr. Strong has led a number of healthcare supply chain companies to positions of industry leadership.

"We're incredibly excited to have John as part of our team. His leadership in the healthcare supply chain space is critical to our efforts to disrupt and improve upon dental supply distribution," said Jacob Drucker, CEO of Supply Clinic.

"All segments of the healthcare supply chain, and especially the purchase of dental products is ripe for disruption," Mr. Strong explained.  "The technology employed by Supply Clinic is certainly disruptive to traditional group purchasing models and can be applied across other segments of the healthcare supply chain."

Mr. Strong spent the first half of his career in supply chain management on the provider side, ending with ten years at Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, Illinois. He then served in senior leadership positions at Premier, Inc., and was the founding president and CEO of Consorta, a $5 billion GPO that is now part of HealthTrust Purchasing Group. Mr. Strong was inducted into the Healthcare Supply Chain Hall of Fame in 2011. 

Mr. Strong now spends much of his time working closely with companies in the healthcare supplies space. He also works with organizations such as the Greenhealth Exchange on volume aggregation strategies, and with healthcare providers and alliances on supply chain operational review and strategy development.

Mr. Strong holds a Master's degree in Business Administration with Distinction from DePaul University in Chicago, and a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
