About Us

The Resource Group, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ascension, is a business transformation services organization that specializes in non-payroll spend management. Through the Integrated Change Management Model, The Resource Group delivers value through change management, operations and logistics, sourcing and contracting, analytics, and continuous process improvement.

This model challenges the status quo by:

* Developing an innovative new approach to contracting, where practicing caregivers from our Participants guide all decision-making, and products and services are contracted for based on attributes rather than brand preference

* Standardizing and optimizing operations and logistics by closing warehouses, improving inventory management, and improving operational key performance indicators

* Elevating resource and supply management from the basement to the boardroom by recruiting top talent from a multitude of industries beyond healthcare

The collective implementation of these components has delivered over $1 billion in annual savings, improving Ascension's Supply Expense as a percent of Net Patient Service Revenue from a baseline of 19.6% in FY2007 to 15.5% in FY2017.

This success enabled The Resource Group to expand outside of Ascension to serve all healthcare systems looking to decrease non-payroll expenses and increase operational efficiencies. Today, The Resource Group serves 2,500 locations including 160 acute care hospitals across 24 states and Washington D.C.
