The health care industry’s leader in Managed Print Services (MPS), announced a contract valued at approximately $35 million over five years with Bon Secours Health System (BSHSI). CynergisTek will implement its vendor neutral, strategic MPS program in 14 hospitals and multiple affiliated care and support locations in six states, saving BSHSI approximately $7 million over the course of the contract.
“We are honored to work with the caregivers and staff at this prestigious health institution to assist them in their goal of reducing costs through long-term volume reduction solutions and maximizing print process efficiencies through continuous process improvement techniques, said Joseph J. Flynn, President and CEO of CynergisTek. “From day one, our full-time, on-site print management specialists and technical support staff will focus on customizing a transformational print services program to meet the strategic goals of the Bon Secours Health System and its ministries.”
BSHSI is a $3.3 billion not-for-profit Catholic health system, sponsored by Bon Secours Ministries, that is widely recognized for providing outstanding patient care and consistently setting the standard in clinical excellence. It is headquartered in Marriottsville, MD, and owns, manages, or joint ventures a total of 19 acute-care hospitals, one psychiatric hospital, five nursing care facilities, four assisted living facilities, and 14 home care and hospice services. BSHSI has more than 22,000 employees and 10,000 physicians in New York, Maryland, Virginia, South Carolina, Kentucky and Florida, and was recently named a recipient of a 2012 Gallup Great Workplace Award which honors organizations for demonstrating ‘the most productive and engaged work forces in the world.’ CynergisTek will help advance that tradition by implementing its strategic print management program that has been distinguished in the MPS industry as “best-of-breed” for its distinct focus on business process transformation which “delivers greater value to the customer and goes beyond simply equipment sales or device consolidation.”
“CynergisTek’s unique approach to assisting us in better managing the assets and expenses of the print environments in our ministries is comprehensive and strategically meets our goal of controlling and driving down costs,” said David McCombs, Senior Vice President of Supply Chain, BSHSI. “We are confident of CynergisTek’s expertise and strategies in delivering operational excellence and savings as a true partner.”
