Supplier Diversity Program
The Supplier Diversity Program was created and developed by Partners HealthCare Supply Chain Management in 2004. The Partners leadership team has been the driving force behind the Supplier Diversity Program initiative. The program was designed to extend the PHS mission of community outreach; involve an increasingly more diverse group of suppliers to participate in the procurement operation; and maintain the highest quality patient care, research, education and financial standards.
The program continues to grow in both size and expenditures. Currently, the Supplier Diversity Program has over 3,000 certified/categorized Historically Underserved Businesses. Listed below are the local certifying organizations that are accepted by Partners:
- Small Business Administration
- Commonwealth of MA, State Supplier Diversity
- Center For Women and Enterprise
- Greater New England Minority Supplier Development Council
By diversifying our supply base, we connect with an emerging market and give back to the communities in which we operate. Partners is a leader in healthcare and plans to lead the nation’s supplier diversity initiatives.
