Amgros was established by the former Danish counties as a procurement service for the healthcare area in 1990. Since 1 January 2007, the organisation has managed pharmaceuticals procurement for all public hospitals in Denmark.

Amgros is the pharmaceutical procurement service for the five regional authorities in Denmark. Amgros is a public-sector organisation owned by the regions. The organisation was established to create economies of scale and achieve administrative savings by centralising the procurement of pharmaceuticals. Amgros save the regions approximately DKK 2.8 billion annually (2016).


The main task of the organisation is to ensure that public hospitals in Denmark always have the pharmaceuticals they need, and that these pharmaceuticals have been procured at the lowest possible price. Amgros is responsible for purchasing 99 percent of the pharmaceuticals used by public hospitals in Denmark.
