Open house aimed at partnering with local, diverse businesses
A hospital that serves the community should be built, as much as possible, by the community it serves. With the new University Health Women’s and Children’s Hospital, our health care system is growing to meet the needs of Bexar County, and we want to include the many diverse businesses from our community in that growth.
This Tuesday, May 2, our Supplier Diversity Department is hosting an open house where local vendors can learn more about opportunities to provide services and products needed for the construction and maintenance of new hospitals and our expanding network of clinics. We are looking for the many service providers needed to build and maintain our health care network. That includes contractors, human resource experts, IT specialists, food service companies and health care analysts.
We want to extend a special invitation to small, minority, women and veteran-owned enterprises, a group often referred to as SMWVBE. We take pride in offering SMWVBE vendors an opportunity to compete for contracts to provide our goods and services. In 2022, our supplier diversity team honed their outreach efforts to bring vendors in through this often-complex registration process. As a result, we doubled our annual expenditure for SMWVBE services, increasing the value of contracts for local and not-for-profit businesses.
All businesses are welcome to join our department representatives to learn more about becoming University Health partners. Managers from our supplier diversity program will be available for media interviews.
