Our suppliers

Mayo Clinic's Supplier Diversity Program ensures equal access to Mayo Clinic purchasing opportunities for all qualified suppliers. The program engages with diverse suppliers, including, but not limited to, women-owned, minority-owned and veteran-owned businesses, and other small and historically underutilized businesses, in the communities we serve.

Organizations play an influential role in advancing equity outside of their walls through the products and services they offer and in the way they manage business relationships with suppliers, distributors and customers."

— Dr. Anjali Bhagra, Medical Director of the Mayo Clinic Office of Equity, Inclusion & Diversity
