CNECT is a national group purchasing organization (GPO) that grants its members access to discounts and services specifically designed to enhance their financial strength. CNECT has more than 8,000 members nationwide and brings over 40 years of experience in the procurement industry.
Under this new three-year contract, CME will provide complete biomedical, technical, startup, and logistical services. This contract will also feature CME's unique "white glove" program that delivers direct-to-site, fulfilling needs from start to finish. Also included in this contract are receiving, inspecting, warehousing, assembling and installing.
Since the start of this partnership in 2018, CME has been actively managing approximately 10,500 pieces of equipment on behalf of CNECT members and have executed over 20,000 inspections across more than 100 locations.
"We are pleased to continue our mutually beneficial relationship with CNECT, providing our general biomedical services to its members, which include labs, surgery centers, veterinary services, offices, and other entities that are not healthcare-related but need our solutions," said Dan Chevrette, CME Director, Technical Services. "Because CME has more than 35 service centers, we can offer remarkably efficient biomedical services and equipment support across the entire nation."
"CNECT is excited to offer our members a competitive contract for biomedical services through CME. Our partnership with CME has proved valuable to our membership and we are looking forward to continued success throughout this next agreement, " added Liz Guthrie, Vice President of Business Development CNECT.
