Rowan. “Every day, healthcare distributors play a critical role in connecting the global, near-sourced and domestic supply chain that saves healthcare providers time and money.”

Collectively, these distribution centers serve over 560,000 healthcare provider locations in the United States – 6,000 hospitals, 44,500 nursing homes and assisted living facilities, 230,000 physician offices, 267,000 laboratories and 12,200 home health agencies.

The map complements HIDA’s interactive map of domestic medical product manufacturers that was published in October 2021.
