Mohawk Group Awarded New Group Purchasing Agreement with Premier
CALHOUN, Ga. March 12, 2019—Mohawk Group announced today that the commercial flooring manufacturer and distributor has become a Premier supplier. Premier, a healthcare improvement company, operates an industry-leading group purchasing organization (GPO) that serves its members by driving performance improvement and enabling them to deliver high quality, cost-effective healthcare.
“Group purchasing organizations are trusted partners for all who engage with healing spaces. These groups help improve various outcomes from clinical to financial, and the overall delivery of quality healthcare,” said Cynthia Hubbell, vice president of healthcare and senior living for Mohawk Group. “Mohawk is committed to being a bridge that connects all our channel partners who provide solutions for the healthcare built environment.”
Premier unites an alliance of more than 4,000 U.S. hospitals and health systems and approximately 165,000 other providers and organizations. With integrated data and analytics, collaboratives, supply chain solutions, and advisory and other services, Premier enables better care and outcomes at a lower cost.
As the healthcare landscape has evolved in recent years, patients have become healthcare consumers, dramatically changing the healthcare model. More and more hospitals are required to offer a higher quality of care for a lower reimbursement. The highest rate of growth in the healthcare supply chain business model is capital construction, which includes interior finishes. As a contracted supplier, Premier GPO members will have access to a wide array of Mohawk Group flooring solutions specifically designed to create high-performance healthcare interiors at specially negotiated pricing and terms. They will also be able to tap into the manufacturer’s case study research and expertise on flooring guidelines for memory care and autism and can leverage Mohawk’s turnkey solutions and other value-added benefits.
The expansion of Mohawk’s relationship with healthcare GPOs reiterates the company’s commitment to sales segmentation that began at the beginning of last year.
“Mohawk is committed to leading our industry by being subject matter experts in healthcare and senior living,” added Hubbell. “GPOs allow us to best serve our important healthcare clients, showcase how flooring is an integrated part of healthcare spaces and reinforce the value of patient-centered care. We are excited to be working with Premier and are eager to help hospitals and health systems strategically leverage their GPO memberships.”
Mohawk Group’s mission is to serve those who heal, live and work in the healthcare built environment by creating innovative flooring across multiple categories, including enhanced resilient tile, sheet vinyl, rubber, carpet tile and broadloom carpet.
