IN OUR MEMBERS' WORDS

“I must commend you for the job you and your team has done. I hear of nightmare scenarios around town, where much bigger, better resourced health systems are in much worse positions than we are. I also would be remiss if I did not further commend the effort [the Premier staff] has made while stricken by this virus! While I certainly don’t want to declare victory yet, and must emphasize the need to remain vigilant in assessing our needs and securing the supplies we need, I do want to take a moment to say: Thanks for all you do every day.”
– Premier Member

“I have to say, I’ve been impressed with how Premier has handled this pandemic. I think it’s interesting to see how many organizations and businesses have adapted, and many have been incredibly innovative. I spend a lot of time researching business and leadership, and it is clear that Premier has a strong leadership team, helping with government policy, vetting alternate vendors, providing bulk buys and communicating proactively and regularly.”  
– Greater Baltimore Medical Center

“You have no idea what [these masks] means to us! Every day ends in disappointment and worry. I thought it would be another commute home in tears, but you have placed a smile on my face this afternoon.”
– Supply Chain Director, Western Reserve Hospital

“The Premier team truly read the situation, reacted, responded and provided relief and support that couldn’t and wouldn’t have come from anywhere else, all while dealing with the personal and professional impacts of shut-down and working remotely. We should be thanking the entire Premier staff, and I hope you have, or will do so, on our behalf. They moved mountains.”
– Vice President, Health Enterprises Cooperative

“The gowns made it down from NC to South Florida in under 24 hours! Premier facilitated a great effort that made a difference to the clinical team taking care of very ill patients. Please note – this was not just any ordinary act of kindness – the clinical team was out of PPE and needed a miracle – God and many people from NC came through with a solution. We cannot thank the entire Premier team enough.”  
– Baptist Health South Florida
