Through a partnership approach, MAGNET GROUP and its vendors can respond quickly to a health care organization’s needs and to regional healthcare trends. MAGNET GROUP and its Shareholders and Member Organizations provide vendors with data and firsthand information regarding what is driving the purchase of services, supplies, and capital equipment.
Our concentrated geographical base facilitates the design of effective marketing strategies. We are intent on building close relationships with our vendors, treating them as “partners” rather than as “free-lance” sources.
MAGNET GROUP and its Shareholders and Member Organizations provide marketing support to our vendor partners, including coordinating the development of customized plans to promote all agreements.
In selecting contract vendors, MAGNET GROUP looks for:
- Quality products and services
- Lowest acceptable net prices based on the “total cost” of each contract item, not merely the acquisition prices
- Sales and service capabilities available for all healthcare facilities
- Stability in past, current, and future levels of performance
- Opportunities for long-term “partnerships” within MAGNET GROUP’s geographical service area
While pricing is important, MAGNET GROUP never loses sight that high quality and service are the first requirement of every healthcare provider. Our partnership approach to business enables us to bring suppliers and providers together in the true spirit of cooperation and thus, remove tangible cost from the healthcare delivery system.
What Do We Look For in a Vendor?
The Contracts Committee meets on a quarterly basis (March, June, September and December) to review vendor RFP’s. In order to be considered for becoming a vendor partner, you must complete the Company Profile Application Form below and mail it along with product literature.
Download the Company Profile Application Form (PDF)
Please download and print a copy and complete. You can download Acrobat PDF Reader software here.
Once your completed application form is received, with product literature, it will be reviewed to determine if the opportunity exists for a further relationship. If there is interest in your product/service, you will be given the opportunity to submit a Request for Proposal (RFP).
Regrettably, time does not permit us to follow-up with every vendor who supplies information to MAGNET GROUP. If we currently have another agreement for the products/services offered by your company; we will maintain your information on file and contact you in the future when the agreement is up for renegotiating.
Please mail your completed form and literature to:
