By Medline Newsroom Staff | January 24, 2019
Medline today announced its prime vendor distribution agreement with Oregon-based Strategic Resource Partners (SRP), a regional group of Intalere National Health Alliance (INHA). Through this agreement, SRP members can access Medline’s preferred pricing and distribution expertise.
“This is a strategic relationship that goes beyond cost savings on self-manufactured products,” says SRP Director of Operations Michael Arnold. “After being with our previous vendor for 20 years, we charted another course with Medline and look forward to bringing the company’s patient-centered solutions, services and expertise across the continuum of care to our members to support greater product standardization.”
The agreement spans SRP’s 14 hospitals, including the five-hospital Samaritan Health Services, home to Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center, one of five Level II trauma centers in Oregon, as well as the multiple clinics and health services serving Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley and central Oregon Coast.
“Forward-thinking systems recognize they can’t keep up with healthcare’s evolving pressures on their own and need trusted partners who can co-create value,” says Medline Corporate Sales Vice President John Abele. “Medline listens to healthcare groups’ needs and ambitions, assesses current operations and then works collaboratively to design best-in-class supply chains that can improve financial and clinical outcomes.”
