About Us Hero

Our Mission

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

Our Focus

Caring for patients is a calling for many. At IPC, our calling is to provide acute and non-acute healthcare organizations with lower prices on needed supplies and services. Savings mean more resources for providers to put into patient care. That’s what drives us to do more for our members.

IPC Group Purchasing:

  • Is a member-focused program combining the benefits of national GPO pricing with Premier with the flexibility of regional contracting through Capstone Health Alliance.
  • Includes hospitals, health systems, non-acute healthcare organizations and other healthcare related service providers as members.
  • Is affiliated with the Illinois Health and Hospital Association (IHA).

Through our affiliation with IHA, we have the resources to meet our members’ needs. Collaboration and volume aggregation are key to our work negotiating better supply chain pricing for healthcare organizations in the Midwest.
