Northwest Regional Primary Care Association is a member organization that strengthens community and migrant health centers by leveraging regional power and resources on their behalf.
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.”
Our Current Featured Vendors

Physician offices, surgery centers long-term care facilities, and home care providers purchase supplies from McKesson. Examples of medical supplies McKesson offers are needles and syringes, vaccine and test kits, custom procedure trays, diabetic supplies, gloves and masks. McKesson, through Community Health Ventures, also partners with Oregon Primary Care Association (OPCA) and Washington Association of Community & Migrant Health Centers (WACMHC).
Henry Schein Medical Division offers our members a comprehensive selection of products and services, operating through a centralized and automated distribution network, with a selection of more than 120,000 branded products.

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.
