Please Note: We request your immediate support as we work through increased concern around COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and personal protective equipment (PPE) supply disruptions.
Until further notice, we ask all vendors refrain from visiting Banner Health facilities for non-essential business purposes. Sales activities are prohibited. Routine business meetings should be conducted via telephone, Skype or similar technology.
At this time, we cannot accommodate the training of new vendor representatives, observation by managers or others from your company. Only essential personnel may enter the surgical suite or procedural areas and must receive prior approval from the clinician in-charge.
Vendors who perform a service function necessary for the operations of the facility may continue services as normal. (Delivery vendors, maintenance personnel, medical gas distribution, office supply delivery, waste removal, inventory replenishment, etc.)
If you test positive for the COVID 19 virus, you must follow the CDC Guidelines and remain sequestered for a period of 2 weeks. If at the end of those two weeks, if you are asymptomatic, you may resume activities within Banner. You will need to follow the preestablished screening requirements at the facility and be masked when you enter. You will need to follow all the requirements set forth by your company in order to return to work as well.
Thank you for your support and cooperation. (View Vendor Visitation Restrictions)
Thank you for your interest in becoming a Banner Health Business Partner. In cultivating relationships with current business partners at Banner Health, we hold our staff and vendors accountable in being objective and unbiased for all current and prospective business conducted at any Banner Health entity. Banner Health requires that all existing Business Partner Representatives to register with GHX (Vendormate).

Access Vendormate to register for Banner Health’s vendor management program.
Vendor representatives must be vaccinated by November 1st and provide proof of such to be submitted into their Vendormate Profile. If they have not submitted proof by November 1st, they will not be able to sign in and will not be able to conduct Business in Banner. There are to be no exceptions.
Work is ongoing in determining if the vaccination requirement will apply to other types of vendors who may be in our facilities yet are not registered in Vendormate or who may not service our hospitals on a regular basis. This includes but is not limited to: grounds keepers-courier service-FEDEX-UPS delivery- blood service delivery-lab sample pickup- service and repair personnel etc.
We are also working on communicating the requirement to our vendors and reaching out to all key accounts that we have had business reviews with this year and building the information into our business reviews moving forward.
Annual flu vaccinations are required.
A no scrub policy has been in effect for many years. We need to ensure that vendors are not wearing scrubs from facility to facility and that they are changing in and out of hospital issued scrubs with each visit.
For Security reasons, it is also difficult to distinguish vendors from employees if they are in scrubs.
