Scripps Health (Scripps) focuses on providing superior health services in a caring environment, and to make a positive, measurable difference in the health of the communities we serve. Scripps works to deliver quality, safe, cost-effective and socially responsible health care. We also advance clinical research, and provide education to health care professionals and the community at large.
What we expect from our vendors
Scripps depends on vendors, contractors and other third parties to help us deliver a quality continuum of care to our patients and community. To that end, Scripps holds vendors and their representatives accountable to specific policies and standards of conduct when they provide goods and services. Our goal is to partner with vendors in a cost-effective, efficient manner to provide the best quality products and services available.
Scripps adheres to legal requirements and the highest ethical standards when interacting with vendors. We qualify vendors, solicit bids, and closely review proposals to ensure contracts with leading companies that provide high quality products and services. We also comply with the requirements of the Scripps conflicts of interest policy.
