CHCollective, the only health center-owned and operated affiliate of Provista-Vizient, the largest healthcare group purchasing organization (GPO), is proud to announce a new partnership with The Association of Clinicians for the Underserved (ACU)

This strategic health center support partnership will connect ACU’s members and network at large with crucial cost-saving opportunities to help them continue to provide – and enhance – their vital services for medically underserved communities.

“Funding uncertainties are a fact of life for health centers, and so are hard decisions: community health centers (CHCs) must continually innovate to overcome resource shortages to better meet the needs of their communities,” said Amanda Pears Kelly, ACU’s Executive Director. To help our health center members and network meet these challenges and elevate their standard of care, ACU is excited to partner with CHCollective. Health center-originated and owned, they have built an unrivaled reputation and understanding of the unique needs of our community over two decades of service.”

This strategic, multi-year alliance will provide ACU members and organizations a wider network to access top-tier vendor relationships and substantial cost savings. Exclusively serving CHCs and organizations that support them, CHCollective boasts an extensive contract portfolio featuring the deepest discounts on the widest range of supplies, equipment, products, and services through their affiliation with Provista-Vizient—the nation’s largest healthcare GPO.

“The CHCollective team is thrilled to embark on this partnership with the Association of Clinicians for the Underserved, working collaboratively to uphold the critical care they provide in our communities,” said Danny Hawkins, Chief Executive Officer at CHCollective.
