Supplier Diversity Program

As a purchaser of goods and services, Allina Health is committed to promoting the inclusion of vendors and suppliers from our local community, especially those owned by:

  • Women
  • Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC)
  • People with disabilities
  • Veterans
  • People who identify as LGBTQ+

By shifting more of our spending for supplies and services to diverse local businesses, we’ll fuel job growth and create an economically sustainable ecosystem that’s good for the health and well-being of our patients, too.

A commitment to supplier diversity is consistent with Allina Health’s core values and diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging principles.

Join our community contracting program

Together with our partner Vizient, Allina Health is creating a regional collective that supports diverse businesses with a local or regional footprint. The goal is to create visibility among area health care providers and community-based organizations such as universities, colleges and other large employers in Minnesota.

Our community contracting program makes it easy for participating organizations to commit to purchasing products or services from diverse suppliers in and around our communities.
