Premier is an alliance of approximately 4,000 U.S. hospitals and health systems. Our acute care members span the nation, stretching from Alaska to the Florida Keys. Our members include a wide array of nonprofit hospitals and health systems, including many faith-based and academic institutions, committed to meeting the healthcare needs of their communities, yet challenged by competing priorities and pressures. Our members are dedicated to delivering quality healthcare services while safely lowering costs.
We also serve approximately 175,000 other providers and organizations. Across the continuum of care, we meet the specific needs of non-acute classes of trade, including senior living, surgery centers, physician practices, imaging centers, home care, ambulatory care, clinical labs and more. We even extend our savings to non-healthcare classes of trade, including education, recreation and hospitality, through the our program.
