Why Advantus Health Partners?

Yes, your health system needs a GPO — but you’ll need so much more to move beyond transactions to a strategic supply chain.

A traditional GPO often fails to deliver true value to your bottom line. Advantus enables you to break the status quo with innovative supply chain approaches.

You need a health care solution that goes beyond just “terms and conditions.”

Our mission & promise

Our mission is to drive value within your organization through collaboration, optimization and innovation.

We promise to work with and for you to develop solutions that meet your organization’s needs. We promise to engage key stakeholders in continuous, inclusive improvement, align the best minds in the industry and use cutting-edge insights. At the end of the day, our goal is to transform historical processes while maintaining integrity, inclusion and trust in what we do and the results we produce.

We will accomplish our promise by
  • Treating all team members, clients and community members with respect
  • Celebrating success while learning from mistakes and missed opportunities
  • Knowing that each day counts. Failure today does not mean failure tomorrow, and success today doesn’t necessarily mean success tomorrow
  • Challenging each other and our processes with the goal of continuous improvement
  • Lifting one another up to drive collaboration and collective success
  • Engaging, coaching and supporting team members. We want people to be excited to work with Advantus
Healthcare Consulting, Supply Chain Consulting: Improving Supply Chain Operations| Advantus Health Partners

Our history

Our work improving supply chain began in 2016 under Mercy Health and continued after the merger of what is now Bon Secours Mercy Health. We focused on consolidation efforts and standardizing timelines.

We leveraged scale for contracting, aligned strategic partnerships, built upon best practices and integrated an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system to maximize value and achieve the best price.

After the Bon Secours Mercy Health merger, we realized that the transactional GPO was no longer the best solution. In 2021, we created Advantus Health Partners as an independent LLC. Our goals remain the same: to support the supply chain needs of health care organizations with innovative solutions.

Our leadership team

We promise to operate at the highest ethical, regulatory and efficiency standards as a purchasing agent for members.
