General Information for Sales Representatives

Welcome to The Bellevue Hospital.

Your time and ours is extremely valuable. To aid sales representatives in every possible way, we have outlined some of the basic information for sales personnel calling at the hospital. We hope this information will make your job easier, increase our efficiency, and result in better service for our patients.

Policies and Responsibilities

The Bellevue Hospital operates on a Centralized Purchasing plan. It is our responsibility to purchase all of the equipment and supplies necessary to operate the hospital. The only exception is the purchase of food and pharmaceuticals. Vendors will be required to participate in our Vendor Credentialing Program if applicable.

Business Hours

The Materials Management Department is open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. You can help us by making your visits between 9:30 a.m. and noon or/and 3:30 p.m. This gives us an opportunity to contact our various departments for you and conclude the day’s business in your behalf. We will appreciate your courtesy in this regard.


No sales representatives should call directly on any department without obtaining permission from the Materials Management Department. All new products should be presented to the Director of the Materials Management Department before evaluation by any department.

If it is necessary to contact other hospital departments, the Materials Management Department should make all the necessary arrangements for you. Our nurses do not see sales representatives unless requested to do so by the Director of the Materials Management Department.
