Melbourne Health, operating as The Royal Melbourne Hospital, is at the forefront of implementing Strategic Sourcing and Category Management approaches to procurement activity within Public Healthcare.

Price is important, but we are really looking to develop long term partnerships with suppliers that are adaptable and innovative, who take accountability, and who can help deliver real and lasting value.

When sourcing goods and services from the market, we are committed to following open, fair, and transparent sourcing processes.

The Annual Procurement Activity Plan provides Suppliers an indication of likely Sourcing activities for Melbourne Health in this financial year. If you have any questions contact Royal Melbourne Hospital Procurement.
