Sigma Hospital Services has won the tender to provide pharmaceutical products to Northern Health
Sigma is now set to supply pharmacy products to Northern Health’s four major healthcare campuses located in Melbourne’s north from October 2017. Northern Health is a provider of public healthcare in Melbourne’s north.
This follows Sigma Hospital Services having won a similar contract with Western Health in Melbourne, which commenced in July.
Together these new contracts are worth close to $40 million a year.
Peter Nolan, General Manager Hospitals at Sigma Healthcare, says he believes these two new contracts show the impact of Sigma’s investment in the hospital wholesale market, with more growth to come.
“Sigma’s hospital services business is growing rapidly and that’s because we are competing aggressively in the hospital sector and establishing long-term relationships with many of the key hospital providers,’’ Mr Nolan said.
“We continue to seek opportunities to provide a differentiated pitch to the market.
”With the recent launch of our service offering in Western Australia, we continue to roll out the Sigma Hospital Services business nationally.
“We look forward to providing exceptional service levels to our customers and are excited about generating new partnerships as the business grows.”
Sigma Hospital Services has grown out of Sigma’s acquisition of CHS in 2014, which had a Victoria only hospital business.
Sigma Hospital Services now has a national presence with annualised revenue around $250m and what it says is a strong pipeline of growth opportunities.
