Mohawk Medbuy Corporation


Mohawk Medbuy Corporation

Mohawk Medbuy Corporation (MMC) is a national, not-for-profit, shared services organization that supports hundreds of hospitals and non-acute care providers in Ontario, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador, PEI, Manitoba and the Yukon. MMC provides efficient, cost-effective procurement of medical/surgical supplies, pharmaceutical products, capital equipment and food/nutrition solutions, as well as warehousing and logistics, accounts payable and linen services.


MMC’s industry-leading Innovation Program, a launch pad for companies in the health care sector, is now accessible to Network members.  Companies whose products or services meet the Innovation Program criteria establish a pricing agreement with MMC. This gives health care operators greater access to new and unique solutions without having to go through a rigorous internal procurement process. Under the terms of the partnership agreement, CAN Health Network Edges have access to the novel products and services listed in the program. 

In addition, all members of the CAN Health Network will be able to refer suitable Canadian companies to the Mohawk Medbuy Innovation Program. This will give more Canadian companies the opportunity to generate sales quickly and increase their revenue.
