Overview of OSHPD
The main objective of the OSHPD is to develop a Hospital Supplier Diversity program that will establish supplier diversity reports explaining the hospital’s supplier diversity goals regarding certified minority, women, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT), and disabled veteran business enterprises.
Hospitals are specifically situated to create and maintain relations within the communities they benefit through involvement with minority-owned businesses such as women, LGBT, and disabled veteran business enterprises.
