NORTH BAY – St. Joseph Health System signed five-year contracts worth $4 million to $5 million with Mission Viejo-based Auxilio, a managed print services company for the health care industry. The contracts will cover service for Santa Rosa Memorial and Petaluma Valley hospitals as well as Queen of the Valley in Napa.

Auxilio guarantees more than $1 million in savings for the hospitals through volume reduction and operational efficiency strategies. St. Joseph already has MPS contracts with the company at its St. Joseph hospitals in Orange and Eureka under a long-term master service agreement that provides a "preferred pricing model" to other St. Joseph Health System hospitals.
