Premier has contracts with more than 800 suppliers, and Toshiba is one of 38 contracted suppliers to receive the Performance Award. Winners are recognized for their outstanding management of Premier agreements and drive toward the mutual goal of providing clinical and financial value to Premier alliance members.
“The Supplier Performance Award from Premier is recognition of the advances in medical imaging technology that Toshiba is delivering to the marketplace,” said Doug Larm, vice president, Enterprise Business Group, Toshiba. “Toshiba develops medical imaging equipment to meet the clinical and financial demands of today’s healthcare environment by supplying technology to improve patient care and diagnostic confidence while lowering overall healthcare costs.”
Awards were presented at the 2011 Annual Breakthroughs Conference and Exhibition in Nashville, Tenn. The award ceremony was held at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel and Convention Center on Wednesday, June 15.
“It is imperative for hospitals to operate in the highest quality environment at the best possible cost and Toshiba has been able to support alliance members in doing so,” said Mike Alkire, president, Premier Purchasing Partners. “We’re proud to recognize them as a top performing organization.”
