MetroHealth Supplier Diversity Statement

As a public hospital system which has diverse patient, workforce and community stakeholders, The MetroHealth System (MetroHealth) has a compelling interest in providing equal contracting opportunities to a diverse range of businesses and persons.  Accordingly, MetroHealth will actively encourage and solicit the participation of diverse suppliers in its various contracting opportunities.

MetroHealth contracting opportunities include those for which public bidding requirements apply and consulting services/projects for which The MetroHealth System Board of Trustees approval is required. All potential suppliers who are able to provide high-quality, cost competitive products and services will be considered regardless of characteristics including race, color, religion, gender, age, or national origin.

The MetroHealth Supplier Diversity Policy has been adopted, not as a response to outside regulatory agencies or mandatory requirements, but as an effort to strengthen ties with the communities in which MetroHealth does business.
