Saving money for members by combining purchasing power
in order to acheive a lower cost of goods and services.
HGP Group was founded in 1988 by John Giampolo who had developed and managed the New Jersey Hospital Association (NJHA)
group purchasing program for 13 years.
HGP began as a small, regional group purchasing organization in the tri-state area of New Jersey that distinguished itself with a member based,
member driven, facilitative approach to the group purchasing process.
As a representative and an advocate for the interests of their members, HGP quickly grew to cover the Middle Atlantic region.
Our affiliation with US Foods via the Manufacturer Cost Reduction (MCR) Program® extended HGP's reach nationally and membership
has now grown to thousands of facilities throughout the United States - resulting in millions of dollars in savings each year!
