Working with CHAMPS has been extremely positive. Ann Marie, our dedicated CHAMPS account manager, has been wonderful in her analytics, communications and follow through. After signing with CHAMPS, she activated all of our Premier agreements and in the first four months our hospital saved over $100 K. This has allowed us to make investments in other areas including our equipment and employees.
