The University awarded a contract for Gastrointestinal endoscopic supplies.
ConMed offers products and supplies that are designed to address serious gastrointestinal (GI) complications and issues through endoscopic means. Bile duct complications including obstructions and leakages are among the most common symptoms requiring the use of plastic and metal stents, balloon dilators, snares, sclerotherapy needles, etc. GI physicians typically require the use of endoscopic visualization in conjunction with the aforementioned lab accessories to effectively treat these GI infirmities.
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)) ConMed Corporation offers disposable gastrointestinal endoscopic supplies that are used in patient procedures. Without access to these supplies, the University of Illinois Hospital will not be able to provide certain types of procedures that require these products. Without these supplies, patients will go elsewhere and in turn, the Hospital will take a loss in revenue.
