Hear from the people who know us best.



“An initial analysis of our vendor and purchasing agreements by CPS™ showed that The Forum’s costs could be reduced in key areas such as food and beverage, pharmacy, therapy, medical supplies, and office supplies. Working with CPS, savings of more than $150,000 are anticipated within the first year.”

Nancy Kao, Executive Director

“Greystone values the way CPS relates to our team in providing client service, not just to the “corporate team,” but to our site-level managers who deliver the goods every day! CPS always tries to find the ‘yes,’ and they chase every possible solution. That means the world to us, because we know you’re finding solutions, not excuses. CPS makes our team successful. You’re an extension of the Greystone team and we appreciate it.”

Rick Cumberland, Senior Vice President

“CPS is a valuable resource to my daily operations. From competitive prices and services to support with vendor conflict, CPS takes some burden from my daily management responsibilities by providing an operational efficiency of using the supply chain in many areas, including laundry and housekeeping. Another helpful resource is the employee discount program, which offers huge savings in comparison with the consumer pricing. Thank you, CPS, for offering me bottom-line advantages.”

Ken Gould
Director of Environmental Services
East Ridge, Cutler Bay, Florida

“Prior to utilizing CPS, much of my time was spent ‘cherry picking’ (price shopping), which took me away from the more important task of attending to residents. Since our partnership with CPS in 2007, my resident survey satisfaction survey scores have increased significantly.”

Rich Yarish, Food and Beverage Director
Blakehurst, Towson, Maryland

“CPS has a wide selection of vendors. You never get just one quote. I feel comfortable that I’m getting the best products and services at the very best price.”

Michelle Hart-Carlson
Clare Oaks, Bartlett, Illinois

“Throughout the entire process, CPS listened to our needs and goals, provided us strong options – and support and guidance in navigating those options – all without influencing our decision-making process. Their collaborative approach and professional expertise made CPS the perfect consultant for our needs.”

Grant Linacre
N.H.A. Administrator
Timber Ridge at Talus

“We were able to reduce our pharmacy costs and take advantage of the additional CPS benefits.”

“LifeBio sees Care Purchasing Services as one of our most important partnerships—we are pleased to serve many communities through our connection with CPS. Working hand in hand, we have been able to spread the word about an important innovation – capturing seniors’ life stories. We appreciate Care Purchasing Services’ ability to seek out forward-thinking solutions to what aging services providers need now and in the future. The CPS staff is never afraid to offer us feedback to help us improve our products and services too!”

CPS was a vital part of the success of the Toby & Leon Cooperman Sinai Residences of Boca Raton opening. Erica as our Client Account Manager was truly on the ball and assisted each director with the appropriate CPS contact. The department specific CPS representatives helped evaluate purchasing and vendor usage to maximize community savings.  There are many moving parts in a start-up community and CPS as a whole guided us each step of the way.

I want to highlight some of the attributes we look for and I will comment on how CPS meets these.

  1. Commitment to Integrity, Growth and Innovation — CPS has all of these.  You all are determined to grow but more important determined to grow doing business the right way.  You all are willing to innovate and change with the demands of our profession.   CPS uses innovation which provides significant benefits to the members.


  1. “Feet on the Street” — What I mean here is there are Business Development Managers, Purchasing Consultants, however you phrase the title who are active with the members.  They are working side by side in many cases with the members delivering value thru cost savings, efficiencies, and customer service.   CPS does this.


  1. Communication — The GPO has to be able to have open lines of communication. There needs to be engagement from all levels.   CPS does this very well.

-We are very picky on who we will want to partner with.  There are others out there who will partner with every GPO. We will not. Our vision, ethics, structure and shared values back to each other have to be in line before we even consider it.

Thank you for support and partnership.
