What Our Partners Say
R T Innes Companies, Grand Forks, ND
"We manage three hotels that save 8 to 12 percent each month on food costs as well as paper and janitorial supplies because of the group purchasing efforts of Avera PACE. I strongly encourage an Avera PACE membership due to the many opportunities it provides to help you save. The representatives take care of nearly all of the setup paperwork and you start to see savings almost immediately. The best part of the program is that most of the vendors already deliver to your properties and drop off the same product, now at a discounted rate."
Mike Brown, Regional Manager
Sisters of Mary of the Presentation Health System, Fargo, ND
"We were able to save significant dollars by belonging to Avera PACE's dietary program. As well, the additional dollars that come back as cash rebates and/or credit memos for meeting various criteria allow us to be cost effective. Since Avera PACE is a shareholder of Premier, Inc., we were able to participate in the US Foods Direct Parent Participation and Utilization Incentive which allows for an additional 1 percent rebate (resulting in annual savings of approximately $16,000 for SMP-LTC)."
Gary L. Bakke, Vice President of Finance
Spencer Hospital, Spencer, IA
"Spencer Hospital has partnered with Avera PACE for many years and has realized savings with aggregate volume purchases in the areas of medical supplies, implants and capital equipment. For example, we saved $40,000, which represents an additional 16 percent savings, on a capital equipment group buy incentive agreement. Partnering with Avera PACE provides a valuable extension to our purchasing team's efforts.”
Karen Brandt, CMRP, Director of Materials Management
