TomoTherapy Incorporated maker of the TomoTherapy® treatment system for advanced, CT-guided radiation therapy, announced that it has signed an equipment supply group purchasing agreement with GNYHA Services, Inc. Pursuant to this agreement, TomoTherapy technology will be made available at contracted rates to more than 220 member hospitals in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Puerto Rico.
Fred Robertson, TomoTherapy CEO, said, It is an honor to work with GNYHA Services, the largest regional group purchasing organization in the country. GNYHA Services is committed to helping its member hospitals improve healthcare quality. The TomoTherapy treatment system will certainly help GNYHA Services fulfill this goal.
In 1996, GNYHA Services partnered with Premier Purchasing Partners, L.L.P., one of the largest voluntary healthcare alliances in the U.S., to offer unsurpassed value and financial return to its members through access to Premier’s comprehensive contract portfolio. Through the oversight of Giuliani Partners, L.L.C., this relationship was extended in 2004, with a renewed focus on flexibility in regionally-enhanced and direct contracting by GNYHA.
