“We have had a wonderful relationship with HPS since our pharmacy start-up. HPS was quick to come to our aid in loading in contracts with our supplier of choice McKesson, Pharma division. They were able to get us up and running with a three week period. Since that time, we have been able to take advantage of other vendor contracts that have been advantageous to our organization. We are an independent hospital, and we feel that HPS has helped us get the BIG CONTRACT advantages while still remaining a little fish in the sea. Our experience with HPS has been nothing but positive since day one.”

“Our school district has been a member of HPS since 2006. We were one of the first schools in Kentucky to join HPS, and they not only save our district valuable dollars, they save us time on the bid process.”

“We were very satisfied with the outcome of our recently designed multi-purpose room. It was better than we had imagined. We have had great reviews from the staff, administration, and residents. We have had good experiences working with HPS interior designers, and it was the right move to repeat our business. We encourage other HPS members to take advantage of the HPS design services.”
