SAHA Partners' Member Benefits
Double the Volume
Our Illucient Purchasing Alliance, a joint venture with the Coastal Carolinas Health Alliance (CCHA), combines the purchasing power of both alliances under one entity and effectively doubles the negotiating footprint of each alliance. It provides members of both alliances with a broader and more price-competitive contract portfolio.
One-hundred percent of savings go directly to SAHA members:
Our goal is to preserve and grow productive relationships with suppliers to bring enhanced value to our members. SAHA does not retain ANY of the savings generated from the custom contracts we pursue on behalf of our membership.
In an effort to provide all of the services our members need, at the best possible value, we do not engage in exclusive contracting with a type of vendor.
SAHA Partners provide a range of both clinical and business services and supplies to keep our member hospitals running efficiently. Through networking and knowledge sharing event, SAHA identifies member needs and seeks out partners willing to provide high-quality goods and services at a discount due to our volume-based purchasing power.
Strong partnerships with cost-saving suppliers and service providers are a primary source of value for SAHA member hospitals. SAHA actively seeks Partner vendors that can help our members solve today's most pressing issues in high-quality, high-value healthcare delivery.
The Southern Atlantic Healthcare Alliance contracts with suppliers to meet the service and product needs of its members, bringing value to the overall membership. SAHA holds over 80 custom contracts for discounted goods and services accessible to our membership.
We welcome the opportunity to work with new vendors to meet member needs. Though there may not be a current need for your service or product, if you are interested becoming a SAHA partner vendor, we would like to hear from you via our interest form.
Submitting an interest form does not guarantee your business will be selected to become a SAHA Partner. Once received, your interest form will be reviewed by a member of the SAHA staff and you will be contacted if additional information is requested or if there is an appropriate upcoming RFP or need within the membership. If there is not a current need within our membership, SAHA will keep your information on file for future consideration.
