Due to the heightened need, shortage of supply and high price of PPE, a collaborative group of healthcare associations and organizations have come together to help facilitate group purchasing of vetted, high-quality PPE.
As a pilot project, the Washington State Dental Association, LeadingAge WA, Washington Health Care Association, Washington Association for Community Health and other healthcare organizations have joined together for an initial group buy of BYD NIOSH approved N95 respirators
and 3 Ply surgical masks – ASTM Level 3
. We are inviting all members to join in our group buy for bulk pricing.
We are working with PPE.Exchange to procure direct from the manufacturer and facilitate our group order for bulk pricing. Depending on how much participation we get, we estimate that the cost per unit will be around $3.00 per N95 respirator
, and around $0.20 per Level 3 surgical mask
. To get these prices, you will need to purchase by the case, but you can easily join with others to purchase a case.
How Do I Join the Order?
If you would like to join in on this order, let us know by completing the survey by this Friday, Oct. 30
. Please only complete the survey if you are seriously considering participating in this group purchase. Based on the survey results, PPE.Exchange will create a quote and offer final pricing. https://survey.alchemer.com/s3/5977011/Washington-Collaborative-Purchase
