An HCA news release announcing the subsidiary's name also provided details about the units within Parallon and what services they will offer. In addition to the business performance group, Parallon will include a workforce management unit to build on the company's supplemental staffing organization. Similarly, a supply-chain unit will expand on HCA's existing supply-chain management and will provide outsourcing, consulting and management services.
Parallon also will offer the services of HealthTrust Purchasing Group, a group purchasing organization of which HCA is the majority shareholder and the managing partner.
