Vendor Guide for Doing Business at Virginia Mason

Virginia Mason values the contribution of the supply industry in the care of our patients. To ensure that the patient is always put first, Virginia Mason will continue to provide access to authorized vendor representatives. Access and the ability to conduct marketing practices are considered a privilege and therefore contingent on the representatives' compliance with the policies and procedures set forth below.

  • Access: Virginia Mason requests that all vendors report directly to the Hospital Dispatch Office, Hospital Level 3, via the hospital entrance at Terry Avenue and Seneca Street, for proper check-in procedure. Read this letter about enhanced security measures.
     
  • ID Badge: All vendors must register with Symplyr before being able to obtain access to Virginia Mason campus.
     
  • Appointments: All contact with Virginia Mason staff will be via appointments only. All appointments are to be made by phone or email. Absolutely no cold calling or loitering.
     
  • Parking: All vendors are required to park in non-Virginia Mason commercial locations. Parking at the Seneca St. loading dock is prohibited.
     
  • Personal Items: Virginia Mason is not responsible for vendor's personal items, nor does Virginia Mason have secure storage space. All personal items brought in to procedural areas must be non-porous and be able to be wiped down.
     
  • Restricted Areas: The Virginia Mason Hospital Lobby and Cafeteria are open to all vendors. All other areas are considered to be restricted — no access.
