Integrity is our most valued asset. How Vizient conducts business reflects on our employees, customers, suppliers and members. That is why even as a privately held company, we hold ourselves accountable to many of the same governance and regulatory standards applied to publicly traded companies by the Securities and Exchange Commission.
We comply with major provisions of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, including the internal control review required in Section 404. Voluntary compliance is consistent with our efforts to increase transparency to our members and other stakeholders.

Three dynamic leaders become one
Founded in 2015, Vizient™ is a culmination of VHA Inc., a national health care network of not-for-profit hospitals; UHC, an alliance of the nation’s leading academic medical centers; and Novation, a group purchasing organization jointly owned by VHA and UHC.
Together, we are a member-driven, member-minded organization working tirelessly to optimize every interaction along the continuum of care.
Vizient provides opportunities for like organizations to find and share best practices in the area of supply chain, quality, safety, and patient care management. We are excited about the ability we'll have to combine supply data with quality data so that we can put meaningful information in the hands of our clinicians.
