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 CHCs 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.”
