Over the past several years, HMHP´s focus on supplier diversity has significantly increased the range and quantity of supplies and services that are purchased from minority-and women-owned businesses. HMHP works to actively identify, solicit, and contract with diverse businesses that meet our performance requirements related to cost, quality and timeliness. Concurrently, we expect those with whom we engage in commerce to share similar commitments to increasing their own business with diverse suppliers.
HMHP is definitely moving in the right direction and continues to look for ways to reach out to a diverse supplier population. Strengthening and expanding our supplier base with small, diverse businesses represents sound business practice, contributes to lowering our operational costs and supports the overall health of the greater business community and economies within the markets we serve.
