The goal of UHS is to utilize contracts with our GPO partner whenever possible for purchased products and/or services to obtain the best overall quality and price. In the absence of a GPO contract for a product or service, UHS will establish corporate agreements with qualified suppliers based on the below criteria:
Supplier products must be of high quality and durability.
Supplier must provide national sales coverage and account management to meet the needs of all UHS facilities.
Supplier must have the necessary capacity to handle large volume and meet delivery expectations and fill rates.
