Our strategic partnerships with industry leading medical manufacturers coupled with our affiliation with multiple general purchasing organizations, enable us to provide over 75,000 products to a national client base. Altamira is a federally verified Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB). The guiding principle to Altamira’s business model is to offer quality products at a reduced cost by leveraging our purchasing power in cooperation with 285 independent medical distributors. We further this commitment by operating in a virtual sense, shedding the traditional brick and mortar distribution models.
Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB)
Since 2011, Altamira has been verified by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs’ Center for Verification and Evaluation as a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business. This designation is bestowed only upon companies that have went through a rigorous evaluation period to ascertain that a company is managed and owned by a disabled American veteran. Verifications are conducted every two years. In the federal contracting marketplace, this classification can provide a competitive advantage.
Altamira is also classified by the Pennsylvania Department of General Services’ Bureau of Small Business Opportunities as a Service Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise (SDVE).
Group Purchasing Organizations (GPO)
For small to mid-size healthcare organizations, Altamira provides Group Purchasing Organization (GPO) access through its partnerships with Amerinet, Med Assets, Novation, and Premiere. By enrolling in a GPO, our clients can take advantage of increased buying power resulting in competitive pricing for their ongoing supply needs.
