The University awarded a contract for Lipiodol.
Lipiodol is combined with chemotherapeutic agents and then injected into the hepatic artery to treat hepatocellular carcinoma.
This purchase is exempt from the usual selection processes of the Procurement Code because the procurement expenditure is for medical supplies or medical services necessary for the delivery of care and treatment at medical, dental, or veterinary teaching facilities utilized by SIU or U of I (30 ILCS 500 / 1-13(b-5)) If the University of Illinois Hospital is not able to purchase Lipiodol, the Hospital will not be able to provide this life-saving therapy and patients will have to be referred to other centers resulting in treatment delays and negative patient outcomes.
