The Mark McKenna Foundation
The Mark McKenna Foundation recognizes Mark's contributions to the development of the field of health sector supply chain. Mark, in his role as President of Novation (1998-2006), was a 2004 founding member of the Health Sector Supply Chain Research Consortium (HSRC-ASU) and a continuous supporter of bringing academia and the industry partners together to solve major problems across the health sector supply chain. McKenna's career spanned both the supplier and provider sectors in healthcare, including senior management positions with Imed Corp., Baxter Healthcare Corp., VHA Inc. He also served as chairman of the Health Industry Group Purchasing Association (HIGPA) and was elected to the Bellwether League Healthcare Supply Chain Hall of Fame (2010). Since his retirement, McKenna has served on a variety of company boards, including the Beryl Cos., the Med Group, SterilMed, Suture Express, Systagenix and UHS.
The Annual Mark McKenna Lecture will bring key innovators and thought leaders in health care to Arizona State University annually to speak on current health care issues and highlight the importance of the supply chain in improving organizational performance and clinical practice.
