Hear Cory Goldstein discuss his passion for supply chain operations, supporting the front lines and then becoming a patient

In this episode, Rick Phillips, HealthTrust’s Vice President, Advisory Services talks to Cory Goldstein, Director of Resource & Materials Mgt. at St. Joseph’s Medical Center, Yonkers, New York.  Cory was working in a COVID hot zone supporting the front lines and then became a patient himself after contracting the virus.  Cory talked  about supply chain operations on the frontlines, PPE preservation, and what it’s like to be a caregiver and a patient.  This is an episode about bringing people together, the importance of teamwork, and how a “Thank You” can be a reward unto itself. We hope you find as much value in this Candid Conversation as we did.
