Since our simple beginnings more than 125 years ago, The Christ Hospital has been dedicated to providing the best, most compassionate care to the Greater Cincinnati community. By continually reimagining what healthcare can be, we have grown to be much more than just a hospital. Today, we are an extensive network of physicians and healthcare providers, working together in more than 100 locations throughout the Greater Cincinnati area, to make that same level of exceptional care more accessible and convenient to all of the communities we serve.
With that mission in mind, we strive to provide the best outcomes in an increasingly cost-conscious, competitive market. As a nonprofit organization, it is our duty to make smart supplier decisions by regularly evaluating products, equipment and services to ensure successful outcomes without compromising quality.
In order to meet this goal, we encourage effective competitive bidding, secure high quality commodities and services at competitive prices, and support the local economy and supplier diversity.
