Dallas March 17, 2009-- Broadlane announced today through a corporate relationship agreement that Legacy Hospital Partners, Inc. (LHP), based in Plano, Texas has selected Broadlane as the exclusive provider of a broad range of supply chain and procurement services to help manage spending for all LHP-owned and managed hospitals.

LHP will access Broadlane's unparalleled national GPO portfolio of consumable supplies, equipment, pharmaceuticals and purchased services. Additionally, LHP will utilize OnRamp™ (Broadlane's client portal) to access contract and vendor information, run reports, view Broadlane news and information, and download training and continuing education.

LHP will also utilize Broadlane's Procurement Services - specifically Transaction Management.

"We are proud to be affiliated with LHP's talented leadership team and anticipate great growth from them in the future. LHP has a mission much like ours: to improve the quality of healthcare services their hospital partners provide to patients and their families.
