Thanks to those in attendance for the HEALTHCARE SUPPLY CHAIN EXPO on MAY 5, 2021.
95 companies participated in the Virtual Healthcare Supply Chain EXPO with Mountain Health Network, CAMC, and Thomas Health Network. We were very pleased with the response, as were the Purchasing Teams at the five hospitals, who conducted 37 follow-up meetings responding to 55 RFQs that were submitted after the EXPO. Huge thanks to these hospital networks for opening up for this B2B local vendor opportunity.
We would like to ask for your feedback in a brief survey about the expo, found by clicking here.
