Group Purchasing Program

Group Purchasing Program

The Washington Association of Community & Migrant Health Centers’ offers a robust group purchasing program on behalf of our members and associate members of the Alaska and Oregon Primary Care Associations.

Our purpose is to help community and migrant health centers save resources, staff time and money by combining their collective purchasing power in order to purchase high quality products and services at preferential prices. We educate ourselves and then our members on the newest vendors and products and help them source alternative vendors when there are shortages.
