The evaluation and selection of suppliers and products for the Luz Saúde units are based on objective and rigorous standards to ensure a high quality service delivery and client satisfaction.

The negotiation of purchases of equipment, consumables and pharmaceuticals is carried out by Central Negotiation Procurement, in order to rationalize and standardize quality and cost in all units.

For this, tender competitions are conducted specifically for each functional area or medical specialty. The tender process follows objective rules and criteria, in order to optimize  the quality / price binomial for all acquisitions. The suppliers with the highest relative importance for our units are evaluated according to the evaluation methodology practiced in the group. This evaluation is taken into account for new tenders and acquisitions.

Purchases for Luz Saúde (Hospital da Luz, Hospital do Mar, Casas da Cidade, Hospital da Misericórdia de Évora, Hospital Beatriz Ângelo) are operationalized by specific teams, which interact directly with the Central Negotiation Procurement and with the different areas in each unit.

We are demanding with our suppliers because they are our partners. We want our relationship to be solid and transparent, so we invest in tools that facilitate the communication our needs and the analysis of the offer available in the market, in particular through an e-procurement platform.

If you are already a supplier of Luz Saúde access the e-procurement platform.

If you wish to register for access to this platform, please contact the Central Negotiation Procurement (send email message).

Social Responsability

Luz Saúde is committed to social responsibility through transparency in our business activities and in the provision of healthcare services that includes the involvement of all stakeholders - employees, clients and families, suppliers and shareholders.

Luz Saúde is committed to social responsibility through transparency in our business activities and in the provision of healthcare services that includes the involvement of all stakeholders - employees, clients and families, suppliers and shareholders.
To fulfill our commitment to social responsibility, Luz Saúde promotes initiatives on several levels with the aim of making contributions to a healthier society and in achieving greater solidarity with people who are more vulnerable.

Examples of this are:

  • childrens visits to our units, to create an early awareness of preventative health
  • free health screenings for the prevention of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and obesity
  • promoting social inclusion by decorating some of our units with the art of young people and adults with disabilities
  • production of audiovisual materials to support patients and their families
  • offering internships and conducting training for health professionals

Also as part of social responsibility, Luz Saúde collaborates with organizations that share similar objectives in the commitment to solidarity, support for the needy, support for caregivers, and in promoting dignity and autonomy of dependent people and their families.

In this respect, we highlight our collaboration with ADVITA - Association for the Development of New Initiatives for Life, in the production of two new DVD sets of training materials, that together, offer a unique and comprehensive training support to caregivers of dependant people.
