This paper addresses some inventory management problems arising in the Italian health care system. We aim at defining inventory management strategies for the hospitals located in Calabria, a Region in the South of Italy. We present some classical inventory management formulations together with the description of a new model, devised to take into account some peculiarities of the case under study. An extensive testing phase is carried out on real data. Numerical results show that the use of the presented mathematical models can be valuable in the decision making process.
