How does this announcement affect me as a vendor?
We value our vendor relationships and will continue to work closely with you as we move forward.
Our hospitals remain open and our QHR Health subsidiary continues to serve hospital, health system and healthcare provider clients across the country.
Will vendors and suppliers continue to be paid in full?
Yes. As part of the “pre-packaged” plan and related Restructuring Support Agreement, the Company and its hospitals were granted authority by the Court to pay suppliers in full for goods and services provided before and after filing.
Will vendors receive payment for any old or outstanding invoices billed prior to the filing?
As part of the “pre-packaged” plan and related Restructuring Support Agreement, the Company and its hospitals were granted authority by the Court to pay suppliers in full for goods and services provided before and after filing.
Do I need to change terms?
Both the Company and its hospitals continue operations and the Court has granted authority to pay vendors and suppliers in full for goods and services provided before and after filing. We value our relationships with our vendors and your continued partnership is critical to achieving a successful outcome of this process not only for our hospitals and patients, but for our business partners and other stakeholders as well.
Why should I sell you goods and services now?
Our hospitals will continue to be vital partners to the communities they serve. This process will enable them to continue the important work they are doing in addressing the COVID-19 crisis, as well as serve their patients and communities. We are relying on you to continue providing the products and services they need. In addition, through the restructuring process, the Company will receive access to additional liquidity, both through debtor-in-possession financing during the Chapter 11 cases and through an equity commitment upon emergence.
Can I take back my goods?
It is not necessary for any vendor to retrieve supplies from our hospitals, and it violates the Bankruptcy Code to take back goods from a company that has filed for reorganization under Chapter 11.
Will vendors be kept current on the status of this process?
Yes. Vendors will be contacted directly by mail and we will continue to provide updates as appropriate as we move through this process.
Do vendors need to file a claim?
Vendors do not need to file a claim at this time. If it is necessary for vendors to file a claim, you will be noticed in writing at a later date.
I received a legal notice in the mail in connection with QHC’s restructuring. What does this mean for me?
These notices are being mailed to a wide range of stakeholders, including suppliers and vendors. Please know that while these notices may be lengthy and complex, they are a customary part of the financial restructuring process and will not impact our relationship with you.
Vendors and others with business relationships, with either the company or any of its subsidiaries, will be contacted by mail. If you have additional questions, please click here to access a site with more documentation, filings, and a toll-free hotline phone number.
