The University awarded a contract for wound vacs, beds, and rental equipment.
Wound vacs, beds, and rental equipment for patients
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)) KCI USA wound vacs, beds, and rental equipment are used in patient care areas that have to do with direct patient care. Without access to this equipment, the Hospital would not be able to offer the proper clinical treatments to the patients that would drive patients elsewhere and result in a loss of revenue to the Hospital.
