Stryker orthopedic power tools
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)) Stryker orthopedic power tools have to do with direct patient care. Without access to Stryker orthopedic power tools and supplies the Hospital would not be able to offer orthopedic and neurological procedures to patients that would result in a loss of revenue to the Hospital.
