Local Purchasing Guidelines

Local Purchasing Guidelines

As a community hospital for nearly a century, we are committed to providing quality, cost-effective services. Because we want our community to choose Reid for their care, we make every effort to do business locally - purchasing from local businesses and contractors, union and non-union alike. However, we must also ensure that Reid remains financially viable and continues to serve our community in the future. To do this, we approach purchasing decisions using sound and reasonable business practices, keeping the following criteria in mind: 

  • Quality
  • Service
  • Delivery times
  • Technology of vendors to interface with Reid's electronic systems
  • Order accuracy
  • Ability of vendor to meet needed volumes
  • Vendor's financial stability
  • Follow-through and resolution on problems
  • Cost
  • Product cost
  • Freight costs
  • Service maintenance agreements

Reid will evaluate purchase decisions on a case-by-case basis, taking into account how we can best fulfill our long-term mission of providing the best possible care at the lowest reasonable cost. Reid's desire to secure goods and services locally is taken even further with our willingness to pay more in order to keep business within the community. Obviously, there is a threshold beyond which this principle would be unreasonable. Our general guideline is 5-10%, although other factors could be taken into consideration.
