Request for Prequalification (RFP) for New Hospital Beds and Stretchers

Friday, April 20, 2018

St. Joseph’s Health System Group Purchasing Organization is proud to announce the launch of a new initiative that is sure to elevate value-based procurement across Canada.

On May 23rd, we are initiating a Request for Prequalification (RFP) for new hospital beds and stretchers. Building on our prior, highly utilized agreements, we are excited to introduce new refinements that have built on our focus toward efficiency.

Over the last decade, we have seen voluntary participation grow consistently, resulting in even more value offered by the volume of equipment purchased. “We get the best value possible and our members recognize that,” says Annette Senko, Assistant Director of CAPsource. This new initiative will include a centralized vendor fair and a new vendor of record process that will help ensure we have all of the necessary agreements in place to accommodate the specific requirements of each Member. Our goal is to enhance the procurement experience by creating a highly efficient two-step process, uniquely designed for effective decision-making.

 There has been tremendous registration to date, but there is still opportunity for increased participation. Members are encouraged to contact Fay Klassen at for further information on this exciting new offering.
