Delta Purchasing Alliance (DPA) was launched in 2016 after years of discussions, data analysis and strategizing. Our original goal was to leverage the combined size and purchasing power of DPA’s member health centers to negotiate preferred vendor contracts and elevated group purchasing discount tiers. We viewed this purchasing alliance as a means to better support our community health center purchasing managers, CFOs and other procurement personnel by:

  • Gathering a dynamic group of health center thought leaders to advise on health centers’ unique challenges and possible solutions.
  • Identifying potential partner organizations committed to promoting the health center mission and with a deep understanding or unique perspective of health center challenges.
  • Securing value on behalf of health centers by bringing compliance and volume commitments to the table.
  • Promoting chosen partners to the health center market.

The DPA is owned and operated entirely by health centers. We are health center people first and know that health centers rely on the expertise of partners to help provide high quality care to the patients and communities they serve. The DPA is proud to partner with best in class distributors, manufacturers and suppliers while offering preferred pricing and impactful procurement solutions to health centers.


The Delta Purchasing Alliance (DPA) is proud to work with CHCollective and their GPO partner, Provista/Vizient. CHCollective and Provista ensure that DPA members get the best possible GPO cost while the DPA – by funneling their business through the largest national distributors of medical, dental, and office supplies – secures the lowest possible distributor “mark ups”.
