We’re proud to share we’ve been awarded another group purchasing agreement for Facilities and Construction services supporting the healthcare industry. Vizient, Inc., the national healthcare performance improvement company supporting more than half of the United States’ healthcare organizations, has awarded Powerhouse a multi-year agreement that gives its members access to increased savings via collective buying power. This contract includes our core suite of services:
- Facility Maintenance: Scheduled and reactive services responding to any maintenance need.
- Exterior Services: Landscape, parking lot, snow and ice removal services.
- Rollouts: Consistent implementation of services within a specified timeframe across multiple locations to maintain brand feel and uniform functionality.
- COVID Response Services: Turnkey solutions to ensure safe environments for staff and customers/clients.
Vizient is recognized as the largest national company of its kind—representing an annual purchasing volume of more than $100 billion. Its diverse membership and customer base includes academic medical centers, pediatric facilities, community hospitals, integrated health delivery networks and non-acute healthcare providers.
“The healthcare market is changing. We’re witnessing a shift to increased outsourcing as the industry experiences labor challenges, particularly with respect to interior and exterior facilities management,” said Amber Alvarez, SVP Business Development, Powerhouse. “Working with organizations like Vizient enables us to ease the strain of this reality for healthcare providers through contracted pricing. As a trusted partner, Powerhouse can protect these organizations’ brands while ensuring functional, safe environments for their clients and patients. This frees them to focus on their core competencies versus implementing cost-center projects that do not generally drive revenue.”
The Powerhouse team is consistently evaluating total returns on investments, ensuring our methods and processes deliver quality, consistency, and overall value—whether delivering on-demand services for single or multi-location organizations of any size. To this end, streamlined processes and smart technologies enable us to implement today what will move people through the experiences of tomorrow with ease and efficiency.
“Today’s climate calls for service providers to be nimble, scalable and hyper responsive. Powerhouse is structured to accommodate those demands, providing single-point-of-contact program management paired with dynamic, tech-driven oversight. Between these advantages and our commitment to deliver an unparalleled sense of urgency across all possible facilities management functions, we believe we can help healthcare organizations thrive,” added Amber.
We’re honored to be part of Vizient’s supplier network and look forward to working with its members.
