Workplace Services to Meet Your Needs

Are you looking for workplace services to meet the growing needs of your company? Avera is here to help. We offer many options to assist your company with education, group purchasing, wellness programs, telehealth and more. Read on to learn more about what we offer.

Group Purchasing

Hospital supply chains often contract with group purchasing organizations (GPOs) to leverage the collective buying power of GPO members. GPOs help those impacted by a reduction in supply by leveraging the power of large group contracts. This means that a GPO is a good solution for small to mid-size businesses facing reduced supply because of the pandemic.

Through Avera PACE, businesses can purchase food, drink, coffee, office supplies, ice melt, entrance mats, toilet paper, paper cups, paper towels, napkins, exam gloves, syringes, furniture and even large medical equipment at very competitive prices. Avera PACE has contracts with producers on just about any needed item. Learn more about group purchasing.
