Featured Vendors
To better serve our member health centers, all of which have a constant need to purchase or contract for products and services, we identify and partner with select vendors that have demonstrated the ability to provide high-quality goods and services and a dedication to excellent customer service and unquestionable business ethics. Vendors that work with community and migrant health centers (C/MHCs) in the spirit of our mission return a small share of Region X revenue to NWRPCA to support our programs and general operations, with no strings attached. We call these companies “featured vendors.”

How does a company become a “featured vendor”?

Generally, this happens in one of three ways:
  • We rely on the connections and good judgment of our national partner, Community Health Ventures, to recommend vendors as partners.
  • The vendor has done business with some of our members, and the members recommend the company.
  • The vendor expresses an interest in starting to do business in Region X, and is then reviewed by staff and board, after which a pilot project with a few NWRPCA members verifies the company’s quality, service and ethics.

Check this page regularly to discover other vendors in which NWRPCA has placed its trust on behalf of its member health centers. You may assume a featured vendor is sharing a small part of its Region X revenue with the regional PCA. NWRPCA members who do business with featured vendors may request an annual accounting of the revenue share the PCA has earned from that business. Contact us for that information.
