Group Purchasing

LifeSpan has partnered with HPS to help you slash costs on a wide array of products – from medical supplies to food to office supplies and much more.   

HPS is a group purchasing organization that serves the needs of more than 4,000 members in 25 states. Member-owned and operated for 70 years, its core membership base is made up of organizations that have a direct impact on the communities they serve, from senior living facilities to hospitals to schools and many more.  HPS is LifeSpan’s exclusive GPO, and is offering a program tailor-made for LifeSpan that includes no dues.

HPS has more than 1,100 members in its Senior Living category. Members have access to more than 120 contracts through which they can purchase everything they need to run their operations. In addition, Region Managers go through significant training to better understand how HPS and its contracts can specifically help its members achieve their organization's goals, namely in these four areas of concern: 

  • Financial Viability
  • Regulatory Compliance
  • Occupancy/Mix/Participation
  • Staff Efficiency

In addition, HPS members enjoy a purchasing program for furniture and equipment, as well as value-added tools like their Contract Analysis Tool, which helps members stay on program and on budget.

Find out what you could be saving by working with HPS by requesting an analysis of potential savings.   You supply about a month’s worth of invoices in a particular area - such as dietary, office or pharmacy - and HPS will provide a comparison of your current pricing to the prices available through their program.  Email Lisa Hedgecock at HPS to get started on your cost savings estimate. 

HPS is a group purchasing organization with one driving passion— making sure its members are the focus of everything they do. As a member of LifeSpan you can take advantage of this opportunity to save money, drive efficiency, and set your program apart from the rest.
