About Us

CAPsource and MEALsource are the procurement programs developed by the Group Purchasing Organization of St. Joseph’s Health System (SJHS-GPO), which was established in 1992 to support the needs of the St. Joseph’s hospitals, long-term care facilities and home care operations. Over the years, through its flexible, value-based sourcing programs, SJHS-GPO expanded to become national in scope, representing more than 450 health care facilities across Canada (View CAPsource / MEALsource Member Directory).

In April 2021, SJHS-GPO was acquired by Mohawk Medbuy Corporation (MMC), a national, not-for-profit shared services organization based in Burlington, Ontario. For more information about Mohawk Medbuy, click here.

As part of MMC’s broad range of services, CAPsource and MEALsource continue to unite health care industry stakeholders in the procurement of cost-effective capital equipment and food and nutrition solutions that  put the needs of patients first. Each program combines decades of experience with proven processes utilizing innovative technologies. You'll receive all the benefits of group purchasing, including information sharing, cost savings, and dedicated support – but always remain in control of what you buy based on your organization's individual needs.
