IPC Group Purchasing

About Us

IPC Group Purchasing

A shared vision and purpose binds IPC Group Purchasing with our members. We're relentlessly committed to increasing member resources for patient care by reducing healthcare supply chain costs. It's what drives us to do more for our members and reflects our commitment to patients across Illinois.

IPC is:

  • Compromised of hospitals, health systems and non-acute healthcare organizations;
  • Affiliated with the Illinois Health and Hospital Association (IHA); and
  • A member-focused program that combines the benefits of national GPO pricing with Premier with the advantages and flexibility of regional contracting through Capstone Health Alliance.
Through our affiliation IHA—one of the top healthcare associations in the nation—IPC leverages collaboration and volume aggregation to negotiate for better supply chain pricing. We're also backed by the resources of IHA to meet our members' needs. In our collaborative environment, members share best practices and identify cost-savings opportunities, resulting in further cost savings.

Our Mission

Through collaboration, innovation and shared learning, our members will reduce healthcare supply chain costs, resulting in increased patient care resources.
