New Partnerships

ROi begins partnering with fellow providers in the industry to collaboratively help them reach their supply chain goals. Our first supply chain agreement and partnership is with Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Health System (FMOLHS), Louisiana's largest nonprofit health care system. FMOLHS moves away from its traditional GPO relationship and begins a journey with ROi that has resulted in significant financial savings and the opening of FMOLHS's first supply distribution center, known as Logistics One.
