Society for Healthcare
Hi! I recently became the Director of Volunteer and Guest Services at Children’s of Alabama. Our gift shop just underwent a change in software as well as being asked to move all purchasing under the hospital system of Infor. I am being told this is due to our nonprofit status. I’m looking for information on the below questions.
1. If your hospital is a non-profit is your gift shop auxiliary run, run by the hospital, or run by a 3rd party ?
2. If ran by the hospital, are you required to go through purchasing?
Any other thoughts or advice welcomed too!
I have run (3) hospital gift shops that were all run under the healthcare systems 501 c (3) nonprofit certification. In my experience no gift shop purchasing has been under the hospitals purchasing department. However, if the hospital purchasing system is designed/tailored to acommodate the retail industry, it may work.
