Our installations on the US Naval Hospital ships, Mercy and Comfort, consist of close to 1000 high-density storage racks. By using Pegasus racking system throughout the ships in locations such as the Patient Wards, OR Suites/Sterile Core and more, both vessels can deploy with enough supplies to service from 250-1000 beds with less than 48 hours notice.

Pegasus was chosen by the US Navy to design and install a Kanban inventory (2-Bin) system in combination with high-density storage racks and baskets. In doing so, Pegasus enabled 10 Naval Hospitals to reduce the amount of labor required to manage their med-surg supply levels, reduce their overall on-hand warehouse inventory, as well as increase patient care efficiencies. The US Naval Hospitals and facilities completed as of March 2017 included USNH Bremerton, WA; Charleston, SC; Corpus Christi, TX; USNH Guam, USNH Lemoore, CA; PAX River, MD; USNH Pensacola, FL; USNH Oak Harbor, WA; USNH Okinawa Japan; USNH Yokosuka, Japan.


Presbyterian is the latest Pegasus Kanban project to include our new color-coded handles. The Kanban system enables the Materials Management Department to reduce its on-hand inventory levels and labor hours while improving the supply chain workflow. This new color-coded ergonomic handle methodology adds an enhanced a visual element to the system, providing both clinicians, and supply chain personnel with a quick and easy way to locate supplies.

All supplies are categorized and assigned to a specific color grouping that is consistent throughout the facility. As Presbyterian is part of a university teaching environment, the color-coded handles allow for traveling nurses and residents to feel comfortable in the supply rooms regardless of what department they may be assigned to.
