Procurement

With over $500 million per year in annual capital purchases managed, it’s easy to see why clients rely on Mitchell to lead this process.  Mitchell provides comprehensive procurement and installation management services for the majority of projects planned by Mitchell and offers this service to projects planned by others.

To maintain our collective knowledge of product information, planners attend national conferences, factory visits and meet with vendors throughout the year.  Mitchell’s proprietary database maintains the details of product specifications, including accessories, from every purchase and is in the best position to facilitate informed clinical equipment decisions.  Because of this, manufacturers know Mitchell as one of the leading sources for new bidding opportunities.  They are accustomed to working with Mitchell throughout the design phase and participate in mockups or evaluations, bidding, installation and training phases.

Mitchell values its reputation as an objective consultant with no financial ties to any manufacturers. 

Working with all levels of healthcare systems, from the federal government to university systems to public hospitals, Mitchell incorporates and meets any guidelines regarding sourcing opportunities and bidding requirements for the project.
