The storage area for the 9,600 items ordered and processed through Materiel Services is located within a 9,000 square foot area on the B-2 Level of University Hospital.  An inventory value of approximately $1,350,000 is maintained which represents an inventory turnover of 24 times per year. Typically, high volume, multiple area use items (stock) are maintained in the MSC warehouse.  Infrequently used items (nonstock) are managed by the MSC warehouse, but are not stored in the B2 warehouse.
