"The contract we have with our GPO produces significant, demonstrable savings for our hospital. GPO-produced efficiencies could not be more important for our hospital, especially during this time of economic necessity. Dollars saved allow us to devote our scarce resources directly to patient care; it also enables us to hire more doctors and nurses."

— Alan Yordy, president/CEO, Peacehealth Hospital (Bellingham, Washington) discussing the benefits of using GPOs for hospitals, "GPOs help cut $38 billion in annual healthcare costs."
