Welcome to The Resource Group

The Resource Group, LLC, a subsidiary of Ascension, is an end-to-end resource and supply management organization that provides a portfolio of Contracting Services, Operations and Logistics Services, Integrated Change Management, and Implementation Services to its Participants through a number of Solutions and Solution Support structures.

altThe Resource Group serves Ascension and non-Ascension Participants at 1,900 sites of care – including 131 hospitals and more than 30 senior care facilities – in 23 states and the District of Columbia. Ascension employs more than 150,000 associates. These locations include general acute care hospitals, long-term acute care hospitals, rehabilitation hospitals, psychiatric hospitals, senior care facilities, physician offices, and other entities throughout the continuum of care. Non-Ascension Participants represent healthcare, higher education, industry, and more.

As both an aggregator and a consumer of its contracts, The Resource Group delivers sustainable value by engaging end-users at the beginning of the contracting process and following through to the implementation of initiatives and realization of savings. Through our wholly-owned group purchasing organization (GPO), The Resource Group utilizes its contract portfolio to deliver value to Participants and Suppliers through increased efficiency, decreased waste, and reduced costs. The portfolio includes: 

• Medical/surgical supplies • Laboratory items • Physician preference items
• Pharmacy • Purchased services • Food
• Environmental services • Logistics management • Information technology
• Capital equipment • Construction • Facilities management

altThis first of its kind, wholly-owned healthcare GPO – combined with its other integral business processes of Operations, Logistics, Integrated Change Management, and Implementation core competencies – has allowed The Resource Group to drive significantly beyond the traditional GPO value proposition of negotiating a generalized contract portfolio.

By utilizing a holistic approach to expense management that is guided by the needs of its Participants, The Resource Group has created a synergistic business solution that delivers sustainable and increasing value. This innovative, integrated change management structure:

  • Combines the purchasing power of Ascension, its subsidiaries, and other non-Ascension Participants with the organizational contracting expertise, operational and logistics proficiency, integrated change management, and implementation capabilities to provide sustainable cost reduction strategies;
  • Provides realization of non-payroll spend reductions for Participants, by transforming the Participants’ internal operations and embedding change management leaders from The Resource Group into the Participants’ organizations;
  • Empowers The Resource Group to utilize a documented, repeatable, results-driven approach that delivers and sustains value to its Participants through an embedded, ongoing, consultative model;
  • Underscores the intent and integrity of The Resource Group’s mission within Ascension.
