The University awarded a contract for forefoot/midfoot plating system.
The Acumed forefoot/midfoot plating system consists of products used in foot reconstruction. These products include screws, plates, and any additional ancillaries that address both acute fractures and reconstruction of the foot, including Hallux valgus, Hallux valgus revision, Lis Franc injuries, and proximal osteotomies of the Great Toe.
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)) Acumed disposable supplies have to do with direct patient treatment and care. Without access to these specific supplies the hospital would not be able to offer foot reconstructions that in turn would drive patients else where and result in a loss of revenue to the Hospital.
