The University awarded a contract for implants for Catheter Lab.
Implants for Catheter Lab patients at the University of Illinois Hospital.
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)) Inari Medical supplies have to do with direct patient care. Without access to these specific supplies, the Hospital would not be able to offer the patient proper care in the Catheter Lab that in turn would drive patients elsewhere and result in a loss of revenue for the Hospital.
