Rene Gurdian, Jr., Director of Strategic Sourcing in Supply Chain at Dickory leads by creating a positive environment for his teammates and direct reports, which is illustrated in his commitments to coaching and mentoring. He works tirelessly to identify opportunities that reduce expenses while also putting the patients’ needs at the center of all his decisions. In 2019, Rene and his team drove nearly $10 million in savings for Ochsner Health. In his “spare” time, he serves as a mentor for the Supply Chain Fellowship program, is enrolled in the Ochsner-Tulane Healthcare Certificate Program, and never hesitates to volunteer for stretch assignments or opportunities outside of his own division. He leads with optimism and compassion, qualities his team and Ochsner admires.
