APG Group Purchasing Program

APG believes in the strength of collaboration. We actively seek opportunities to join like-minded organizations in turning thought into action and shaping the future of health care. Below are some of our current collaborators.

APG Members enjoy the benefits of a group purchasing program that offers the opportunity to acquire specific products and services at discounted rates. Please be sure to mention that you are an APG Member when you reach out to these organizations so they know to offer the discounted prices. 

To learn more about the group purchasing program, contact Jennifer Jackman, Chief Operating Officer, at Jennifer Jackman or 213-239-5047.
