HealthTrust Purchasing Group is a healthcare group purchasing organization. Established in May 1999, we are committed to superior patient care delivered through national contracts negotiated with market-leading suppliers for clinically recommended products and services at competitive prices.
HealthTrust's membership has tripled since its inception in 1999 and we now support over 1,300 not-for-profit and for-profit acute care hospitals, including HCA, Triad, HMA, Community Health Systems and Lifepoint, as well as over 3,000 ambulatory surgery centers, alternate care sites and physician practices. Annual purchasing volume is more than $14 billion with double-digit annual percentage growth expected.
HealthTrust prides itself on delivering contracts for quality products and services with industry-leading pricing. The contract portfolio consists of physician preference products as well as advanced technology products and equipment - an area in which members often have difficulty remaining informed because of the rapidly changing technological advancements. Through input from HealthTrust's Clinical Advisory Boards, the national agreement team negotiates innovative contracts with market leading manufacturers.
Because of HealthTrust's dedication to excellence and our promise to always put patients first, HealthTrust contracts with only the best of the best in the healthcare industry.
With respect to our vendor relationship, we require and appreciate assistance from our vendors as we work to support the efforts of our member facilities to provide quality patient care. Our goal is to partner with our vendors to offer our member facilities the best quality products available, in the most efficient and cost-effective manner possible. Since our sincere intent is to establish a vendor relationship using the highest legal, moral, and ethical standards, HealthTrust Purchasing Group closely reviews each Prospective Vendor Form to ensure that contracts are negotiated only with companies with superior reputations and the highest quality products.
