About Our Program

Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center is fully committed to being proactive and responsive by engaging with businesses that reflect the communities in which we live, work, and serve.

Saint Francis established its Supplier Diversity Program to cultivate and develop meaningful relationships with minority-owned, woman-owned, veteran-owned, and small business enterprises.

By fostering these relationships, we are in a position to identify and access business and/or contract opportunities to various diverse business enterprises, while sustaining long-term healthcare success at Saint Francis. We ensure all suppliers have equality of opportunity to competitively participate in the procurement supply-chain process.


Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center embraces the importance of Supplier Diversity. Our mission is to work diligently to create strong relationships with qualified diverse business enterprises to help create meaningful contract opportunities while sustaining a competitive advantage. Through Supplier Diversity, our aim is to create a mutually beneficial long-term social and economic impact in the communities we serve.

The Principles of A.C.T.

  • A – Attract qualified diverse business enterprises to become a part of the supply chain pool of vendors seeking contract opportunities

  • C – Commit to increasing our percentage of business for Minority, Woman, Veteran, Veteran Disabled and Socially and Economically Disadvantaged Business Enterprises annually.

  • T – Treat ALL of our diversity business enterprises with respect by understanding what it means to be a diversity business enterprise. Through open communication, we endeavor to find opportunities to be supportive and to arrive at a win-win business experience.
