What Scripps Health expects from its 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.
Scripps supplier diversity
We seek suppliers and service providers with the highest quality and financial opportunities. We recognize the importance of diversity, equity and inclusion. We encourage prospective suppliers or service providers to reach out if interested in being considered for existing or future business opportunities.
