Alexandria, VA – ALFA and HPSI Purchasing Services are now partnering to bring the power of group purchasing to ALFA members.
HPSI is the nation’s leading group purchasing organizations for the long term healthcare industry. With a vast membership base, HPSI offers a network of local, regional and national vendors that can provide ALFA members with volume discounts on a range of name-brand products, services and equipment.
Through this agreement, ALFA members may take advantage of group buying rates on a range of contracted products and services, including grocery distributors; housekeeping, linen, pest control, maintenance and interior design services; forms/charting supplies; medical and office supplies; laundry and kitchen chemicals; capital equipment; and Web-based menu services. HPSI provides its customers with cost analyses to identify potential areas of cost savings, and each month provides a detailed report of purchases to help customers control costs and forecast for future budgets.
