Group Purchasing

Alliance Purchasing Network

This valuable service, which is offered through Alliance Purchasing Network (APN), enables organizations to take advantage of a special group purchasing program designed exclusively for long-term care and senior living providers.  APN negotiates highly competitive pricing and rebates to help participating organizations reduce and manage their operating costs.  APN’s ever-growing vendor list includes preferred suppliers of food products, dietary equipment, medical supplies, office supplies and equipment, institutional pharmacy, janitorial/sanitation products, and a variety of other products and services.

How big are the savings?  Alliance members benefit from  APN contract pricing, which means savings of  6 to 14% off conventional advertised prices.  Members are also eligible for manufacturer’s rebates of 2 to 6% off their total purchase of select items.  And they receive all these benefits without paying any dues or participation fees.
