Putting knowledge and buying power to work for Canadian healthcare
MISSISSAUGA, ON, May 6, 2019 /CNW/ - HealthPRO, Canada's group contracting provider for healthcare, today introduced a new corporate brand designed to reflect the organization's unique position within Canada's healthcare system.
"The breadth and depth of what we have achieved, and the essential role we now play within Canadian healthcare, needed to be better represented in our story," said Cynthia Valaitis, HealthPRO's President and CEO. "Our new brand does this and we are excited about reaching the next level of success for hospitals across the country."
Founded in 1996, HealthPRO aggregates billions of dollars in annual contract volume across 1,300-member healthcare facilities in seven provinces and the territories. The organization uses the collective knowledge and buying power of these member facilities to reduce the cost of high-quality products and services used in Canada's healthcare system, as well as drive improvements in patient safety, pursue new ideas and innovations, and maintain assurance of supply.
"Through decades of collaboration, we have become the national platform for the collective purchasing efforts of Canadian hospitals and healthcare facilities," said Ms. Valaitis. "Our members are under severe pressure to deliver best value on everything they do, and we are right there with them to help get it done to the highest standard."
HealthPRO is wholly owned by its member shareholders: provincial health authorities, hospitals and shared service organizations across the country. For more information, please visit healthprocanada.com.
