Value First
Group Purchasing                         

LeadingAge Wisconsin is proud to be one of the owners of Value First.

Value First is a group purchasing organization (GPO) that leverages the buying power of long-term care communities to provide significant savings on food, medical, janitorial, office supplies, capital equipment, and new construction materials. In collaboration with Provista, a supply chain partner with more than 200,000 customers, contracts are negotiated with suppliers based on over $100 billion of shared purchasing volume. More volume means bigger discounts. 

LeadingAge Wisconsin members who participate in the Value First purchasing program pay no annual fee, select only the suppliers that best fit their needs, and support LeadingAge Wisconsin with their purchases.  Unlike any other GPO, Value First is an extension of LeadingAge Wisconsin that specializes in supporting the purchasing needs of LeadingAge Wisconsin members.
