Our Premier Inc GPO Affiliation
Through Premier Inc., THSCS is able to provide the most competitive pricing. With Premier GPO affiliation, prices are negotiated on your behalf to take the burden off of you, so you can focus on what matters most: your patients. Many Premier agreements are tiered and the highest tiers require high dollar volume. By becoming a THSCS member, your facility will be able to leverage the total THSCS spend and get the highest tiers available in most cases.

How does the affiliation work?
Fill out a simple membership application with basic info about your business. We will then take it from there! One of our Membership Representatives will reach out to you to discuss your needs and how we can help improve your purchasing power, quantifying what your business’s savings can be with our partnership. Then that’s it! You continue purchasing from your current suppliers, but with our partnership you will now be privy to better pricing and possibly better service, like more access service and support features. You don’t ever have to worry about missing out on a contract that would suit your business, because our team will create regularly scheduled calls with you to let you know about new contracts. Depending on the size of your business, we may also provide quarterly business reviews. In addition to keeping you up-to-date with the most current contracts, we will regularly inform you of any upcoming events.
