NORFOLK, Va., Nov. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- MedStar Health, Novant Health and Sentara Healthcare have agreed to work together to reduce their supply expenses and improve operational performance.  The newly formed MNS Supply Chain Network, LLC, as it has been named, represents more than $3 billion in annual purchases of supplies and services.
