“We have had a wonderful relationship with HPS since our pharmacy start-up. HPS was quick to come to our aid in loading in contracts with our supplier of choice McKesson, Pharma division. They were able to get us up and running with a three week period. Since that time, we have been able to take advantage of other vendor contracts that have been advantageous to our organization. We are an independent hospital, and we feel that HPS has helped us get the BIG CONTRACT advantages while still remaining a little fish in the sea. Our experience with HPS has been nothing but positive since day one.”
