Led by Operations Director Paulo Maldonado, a recent 100-day waste walk yielded $3.7M in hard savings for the 2017 budget at UMC Health System. “It’s the small things,” says Lisa Barrington, Lean Six Sigma manager for UMC Health System, as she exclaims the impact of hundreds of submitted process improvement projects through the walk. One project, in which they replaced dripping sanitizer dispensers with models that waste less, resulted in $12,000 saved per year.
