About Us

IPC Group Purchasing

IPC is comprised of hospitals and health systems and non-acute care providers with a shared vision and purpose - to increase patient care resources by reducing health care supply chain costs.

IPC is affiliated with the Illinois Health and Hospital Association (IHA). Through this affiliation with one of the top healthcare associations in the nation, IPC uses collaboration and volume aggregation to negotiate improved supply chain pricing. Additionally, IPC has access to IHA's myriad resources to help address the needs of our members. Within this collaborative environment, members share best practices and identify cost-saving opportunities.

A collaboration among the Illinois Health and Hospital Association, hospitals and healthcare systems, Premier, Inc., and Capstone Health Alliance, this unique program combines the benefits of national GPO pricing with the advantages and flexibility of regional contracting.

Our Mission

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