Acurity, a former subsidiary of the Greater New York Hospital Association, has served members in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut for more than 40 years, and has been a Premier customer and strategic partner for 24 of those years. With more than 300 hospital members and 2,700 health-related facilities, Acurity in FY2019 accounted for approximately $68 million – or 10% – of Premier’s total net administrative fees.
Premier’s acquisition of Acurity takes GNYHA out of the group purchasing business.
“The loyalty between Acurity and its members, generated over a 40+-year history as a GPO, is an important reason why Premier acquired Acurity,” said Premier Senior Vice President of Supply Chain David Hargraves. “Remaining relevant, maintaining high participation while identifying savings opportunities, and contracting in new technologies and gap areas will continue to be important elements of Acurity’s mission and success within Premier.”
