This month’s cover story sees us discussing the road to procurement transformation at a rapidly growing company with Chris Shaffer, Senior Director of Procurement, Facilities & Biomedical Support at EyeCare Partners…

“ECP is the most clinically integrated eye care organisation of its kind,” Shaffer explains from his St Louis office, “with a high-focus on patient outcomes and exciting growth potential, this was an amazing opportunity for my family and me. I came on board with them March of 2020 – two weeks before the world stopped turning due to COVID-19.”

Chris Shaffer, Senior Director of Procurement, Facilities & Biomedical Support at EyeCare Partners

Shaffer has been at EyeCare Partners for just over two years, leading the Procurement function as well as Environmental Health and Safety and Facilities. He also leads a growing Biomedical Support function, charged with end-to-end medical equipment lifecycle management across the organisation.

EyeCare Partners’ growth supports its mission to enhance vision, advance eye care and improve lives. But this level of growth requires an agile and resilient operational enterprise. EyeCare Partners has a strong track record of driving organic growth and improving operational efficiencies. It has made substantial investments in technology and clinical infrastructure designed to enable continued long-term growth. EyeCare Partners aims to create synergies and efficiencies within their expanding practice partnerships and footprint – and underpinning the overarching corporate strategy is Shaffer and the Procurement team.
