Dräger announced that Vizient, the largest group purchasing organization (GPO) in the U.S., has selected the company as “Pediatric Supplier of the Year” based on its exceptional support, partnership and organizational commitment toward assisting pediatric hospitals in achieving their supply chain goals.
