  • Atlantic Health System in Morristown, N.J.

  • Hackensack University Health Network in Hackensack, N.J.

  • Lehigh Valley Health Network in Allentown, Pa.

The AllSpire Health GPO signed an exclusive agreement with HealthTrust, a national GPO provider based in Brentwood, Tenn. Each participant in the new GPO is a member of HealthTrust and has full access to its extensive contract portfolio.
