Supplier Diversity Program

The Children's Mercy Supplier Diversity Program is an organization-wide initiative meant to strengthen our supplier base and invest in our community. Our commitment to supplier diversity brings financial, operational, and cultural value to our organization. Children's Mercy benefits from the expertise, innovation, and flexibility of diverse businesses and from an open, competitive bidding process. In addition, the organization also benefits from a connected and growing local economy. Enabling equity of access and opportunity must be an active and strategic process. The Supplier Diversity Program works to build this process so that all vendors compete in an accessible and fair environment. We continually seek viable and diverse businesses that can help us achieve our goals of providing ever increasing value to our patients, their families our clinicians, and staff, while stimulating the economic viability of the community.
