Advantus, a Healthcare Group Purchasing Organization (GPO), provides product solutions that lower expenses and improve outcomes. As a supplier of Advantus, the Kimball, National, Interwoven, David Edward, and Etc. brands join an extensive, aligned network, providing its members access to a broad portfolio of supplies and services. Advantus Health Partners is a subsidiary of Bon Secours Mercy Health, the fifth-largest Catholic healthcare system in the U.S. This GPO is characterized by its narrow and selective supplier base. This deliberate approach reflects their commitment to fostering long-term, sustained value for both suppliers and customers.

“We take pride in being selected by Advantus to be part of this GPO. With the superior products within our family of brands, we are confident in our ability to provide furniture solutions to Advantus members for all types of healthcare environments.”
