We Are Hiring

Pharmacy Director - Pharmacy Administrative Support - Full-Time, Days - Westport Center Drive - St Louis, MO

Why Join Ascension?

The Resource Group, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ascension, is a business transformation services organization that specializes in non-payroll spend management. Through the Integrated Change Management Model, The Resource Group delivers value through change management, operations and logistics, sourcing and contracting, analytics, and continuous process improvement.

This model challenges the status quo by:

  • Developing an innovative new approach to contracting, where practicing caregivers from our Participants guide all decision-making, and products and services are contracted for based on attributes rather than brand preference
  • Standardizing and optimizing operations and logistics by closing warehouses, improving inventory management, and improving operational key performance indicators
  • Elevating resource and supply management from the basement to the boardroom by recruiting top talent from a multitude of industries beyond healthcare

From FY14 to FY18, The Resource Group has achieved an incremental annual saving of approximately $102M through Therapeutic Affinity Group initiatives.  While these efforts will continue to be supported, we must also begin to identify additional clinical opportunities to support the Ascension Clinical Variation efforts that requires the delivery of $400M in savings. 

This success enabled The Resource Group to expand outside of Ascension to serve all healthcare systems looking to decrease non-payroll expenses and increase operational efficiencies. Today, The Resource Group serves 2,500 locations including 160 acute care hospitals across 24 states and Washington D.C.
