Meet Michele Bruce, a dedicated program manager for the clinical transformation team at Advantus. Michele exemplifies the spirit of Advantus. Her unique story and perspective continue to prove valuable to her team and our clients. Her passion for others motivates her to help health organizations continually improve patient care delivery and supply chain practices.
Michele’s journey with Advantus began when the company started in 2021. However, her commitment to health care grew over a remarkable 11-year tenure with Bons Secours Mercy Health, one of the largest health systems in the U.S. Michele’s story is one of resilience and seizing opportunities as she transitioned from a radiology manager to joining the supply chain team after an injury left her unable to continue her career in a clinical setting.
“I’m a firm believer that when a door closes, another one opens,” reflects Michele, embodying the spirit of optimism that resonates throughout our organization. Now at Advantus, she brings compassion and knowledge from her clinical experience that makes her an integral part of our team.
Patient-focused supply chain
In her role as program manager, Michele wears many hats—attending conferences, transcribing meeting minutes, processing payroll, and diligently organizing team meetings, among other administrative duties. Her enthusiasm for the health care supply chain industry is contagious, and she takes pride in knowing that every decision her team makes ultimately supports and impacts the lives of patients.
“We all know how important our job is, and at the end of the day, it is the patient who matters the most,” affirms Michele, highlighting the heart-centered approach that defines her work.
Clinical transformation built on compassion
Michele knows that clinical transformation is built on compassion and a drive to improve patient safety, quality of care and clinical outcomes. By helping organizations with clinical transformation solutions, Michele helps patients receive the best care possible.
What sets Michele apart is not only her professional dedication, but also her commitment to making a positive impact beyond the workplace. Michele’s compassion extends into her volunteer work with her church, where she actively participates in bingo events. When she’s not immersed in her professional and volunteer commitments, Michele cherishes moments with her grandchildren and seizes every opportunity for a beach trip.
