Gain significant savings and resource efficiencies that can be redirected into advancing patient care, while ensuring that procurement processes comply with the Canadian Free Trade Agreement (CFTA), the Comprehensive Economic Trade Agreement (CETA), as well as provincial and regional contracting regulations.
National scope—including more than 1,300 member facilities—allows us to aggregate purchasing volumes, thereby achieving the greatest value on the industry’s most frequently used products and services, with 100% of profits returned to members as patronage dividends every year.
We manage the procurement process across a broad range of service areas in order to reduce purchasing complexity for our members. Our process includes: hands-on product evaluation; developing clinical criteria; prequalifying suppliers; managing the awards process; and communicating with stakeholders every step of the way.
The safety of your patients—and the reputation of your facility—are vitally important. In an effort to mitigate risk to patients and our members, we maintain robust product evaluation processes based on best practices set out by Health Canada, the Institute for Safe Medication Practices and the Canadian Society of Hospital Pharmacists, amongst many others.
We embed layers of accountability into our processes and workflow, including oversight from national member committees, task forces and regulatory bodies. We are accountable to our members to maintain leading practices—for the good of patients and the healthcare system as a whole—and always award contracts on time.

Working with HealthPRO’s Signature Services team was an excellent experience. I was impressed with the process and felt completely supported.
