"With reimbursements declining, we needed to select a GPO that would help our company save on the goods and services we purchase every day. CHAMPS has proven to be a collaborative partner and addressed all of our concerns about contract commitment and pricing as well as the time it can take to manage contracts. Our account manager, Myra, and the team at CHAMPS manages all aspects of our Premier GPO participation. Their aggregation initiatives, contract variety, and the US Foods program has helped us reduce our costs tremendously."

-- Bill Muenchow, Manager of Ancillary Services, Laurel Health Care Company
