Our member hospitals need high-quality products, careful sourcing and expert supply chain management. They need to efficiently control costs, while delivering safe and effective patient care.

You are instrumental in meeting their needs.

We invite you to become a part of Premier.  Every step of the way, we work to add value for you, to maintain a strong and mutually beneficial relationship.

Premier welcomes suppliers, from small startups specializing in one product, to multinational conglomerates with broadly diversified product portfolios spanning multiple categories. Our diverse portfolio allows us to offer a wide range of choices to our alliance members. By engaging a variety of suppliers, Premier helps enhance marketplace competition, keeping costs down and product quality high. Want to know more about our contract portfolio?

We help emerging companies position themselves for the national stage, just as readily as we help established suppliers maintain a competitive edge.

Through our well-developed programs that encourage both innovation and competition, small and diverse suppliers have successfully entered and expanded in the marketplace.

For us, it’s not the size of your company or even the length of your relationship with us that matters most. The best supplier partners for us are those who want to forge a mutually beneficial, collaborative relationship and who are committed to delivering the best value to our members.

The most successful Premier contracted suppliers are:

  • Committed to delivering their best value on the national agreement
  • Willing to listen to our members
  • Flexible and creative
  • Engaged and proactive
  • Strategic in their planning and approach
  • Reasonable and focused in their pursuits

Plus, our Technology Breakthroughs program encourages the innovation that supports our members’ efforts to provide high-quality, cost-effective care.
