HAN members Bon Secours Mercy Health, CommonSpirit Health, and Providence St. Joseph Health are spotlighted by Catholic Health World for adopting the HAN Impact Purchasing Commitment (IPC). Pictured is Homeboy Industries, which CommonSpirit Health’s California Hospital Medical Center in Los Angeles contracted with for electronics recycling.
From the article:
Those that have signed on to the Impact Purchasing Commitment have agreed to specific purchasing strategies and to dollar figures for their increased spending with minority-owned, women-owned and local businesses, and particularly those in economically struggling communities. Dunlap says the 50-hospital Bon Secours Mercy will be increasing its spending with these vendors and contractors “by tens of millions” over the next five years. Santore of Providence says the figures each member has agreed to amount to a “big, audacious goal” that will require each to make significant changes.
