Customer Testimonials

  • "We have had great success working with Avera PACE and some of the companies they have contracts with. We have saved $$$ of dollars by purchasing under their contracts. It is so easy to use and we do not have to anything special to take advantage of the discounts. They have a team that is willing to help in anyway. Thanks for this opportunity and keep up the great work."

  • "We were able to save significant dollars by belonging to Avera PACE's dietary program. As well, the additional dollars that come back as cash rebates and/or credit memos for meeting various criteria allow us to be cost-effective. Since Avera PACE is a shareholder of Premier, Inc., we were able to participate in the US Foods Direct Parent Participation and Utilization Incentive, which allows for an additional 1% rebate (resulting in annual savings of approximately $16,000 for SMP-LTC)."

  • “Spencer Hospital has partnered with Avera PACE for many years and has realized savings with aggregate volume purchases in the areas of medical supplies, implants and capital equipment. For example, we saved $40,000, which represents an additional 16% savings, on a capital equipment group buy incentive agreement. Partnering with Avera PACE provides a valuable extension to our purchasing team's efforts.”
