GNYHA Services / Premier Program

With the most comprehensive portfolio at superb pricing, we deliver significant, measurable, and sustainable savings to our members. Hospitals participating in the GNYHA Services/Premier purchasing program have access to superior technology and resources that give them the best contract and spending management capabilities available anywhere. In fact, our program offers several unique tools—including an online letter of commitment process and price verification at the point of order—that will give you more control over your hospital's purchasing.

Why Premier?

Serving more than 3,400+ hospitals and more than 110,000 other healthcare sites, the Premier healthcare alliance is working to transform healthcare. Owned by not-for-profit hospitals, Premier operates one of the largest healthcare purchasing networks. It also has the nation's largest comprehensive repository of hospital clinical and financial information, as well as labor productivity management and comprehensive consulting solutions. A subsidiary operates one of the nation's largest policyholder-owned, hospital professional liability risk-retention groups. Premier is working with the United Kingdom's National Health Service North West region to implement a model pay-for-performance program, dubbed "Advancing Quality." Established to improve the health of communities, Premier and its members are transforming healthcare together.

The Premier healthcare purchasing network is committed to accelerating members' financial performance through improvements in all aspects of the healthcare supply chain.

The strength of Premier's portfolio—some 1,900 contracts—is reflected in its purchasing volume of $41 billion. With Premier as our national group purchasing organization partner, we offer our members the most competitive national contract pricing in the industry. We further enhance these prices for members through our landmark purchasing model. Since our region is unlike any other in the country, with its geographic density of healthcare facilities, why shouldn't our prices reflect that?

Premier's long-standing commitment to performance excellence was recognized in 2006, when it received the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, the nation’s highest presidential honor awarded to organizations for performance excellence. And for the fifth straight year, Premier was also named one of the World's Most Ethical Companies by the Ethisphere Institute. We are proud to call Premier our partner.


Premier was selected as our national group purchasing partner in 2004, after a rigorous selection process supervised by Giuliani Partners, LLC—the consulting firm headed by former New York City Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani. In 2006, Giuliani Partners evaluated the program's progress, finding an average of approximately 10% savings for medical/surgical supplies and food, 2% savings on pharmaceuticals, and an overall average savings of more than 5%. This pricing advantage has continually improved.
