Capital Equipment Sourcing

St. Joseph's Healthcare Services GPO CAPsource program - Nurse monitors patient on respirator

 

 

From highly complex equipment such as MRIs, CT scanners and monitors to well-defined equipment such as mattresses, wheelchairs and carts, our CAPsource program conducts more than 60 capital procurement initiatives each year, using trusted and proven processes that deliver value to healthcare providers from coast to coast to coast. The program is offered in collaboration with St. Joseph’s Health System GPO  (click to visit St. Joseph’s Health System GPO website) – the only organization specifically dedicated to strategic sourcing for capital equipment.
