HealthTrust is committed to providing opportunities for minority, women, and veteran owned businesses by ensuring fair consideration as suppliers of contracted products and services. When a diverse supplier registers via the Prospective Supplier Profile, they will have an opportunity to indicate that they are a diverse supplier. When a bid opportunity arises, this information is passed on to the appropriate sourcing personnel.
Supplier diversity promotes innovation through new products, services, techniques and solutions. This innovation not only benefits the healthcare industry, but the patients who receive care through our member hospitals.
Supplier diversity drives competition among suppliers of all sizes while offering additional supply chain channels for products and services.
Meeting Patients’ Needs
As demographics shift, a diverse supplier base, reflecting the diversity the communities our members serve, will enhance our efforts in meeting those patients’ needs.
