A Mercy-owned cost management and supply chain solutions organization has a new home west of Springfield.  The ribbon was cut Tuesday on a 100,000-square-foot building for ROi’s Custom Pack Solutions or CPS, 3000 W. Sawyer Rd. in Republic. 

The facility assembles and sterilizes custom surgical packs, which hold medical supplies needed to perform a variety of procedures.  The packs are shipped directly to Mercy facilities and other health care systems across the U.S.

A company founded and owned by Mercy has broken ground on a new facility in Republic. ROi (Resource Optimization & Innovation) will house the company’s custom surgical pack manufacturing facility, Custom Pack Solutions, in the 100,000-square-foot facility. ROi’s chief operating officer, Michael Rivard, said the packs are like tool kits for doctors to use when treating patients.
