The University awarded a contract for rigid and flexible video endoscopy equipment.
This Cooperative purchase is made in accordance with 30 ILCS 525, 30 ILCS 500/25-15(b) and 44 ILL. Admin. Code 4.2036(e). Karl Storz is the video provider for the main Hospital campus. Besides surgeon preference, Karl Storz is able to provide equipment for all specialties given the product portfolio (Flex scopes/3D/rigid scopes). UI Health was able to transfer some of the main campus equipment to the new facility and was able to purchase less equipment since both surgical areas can share and the equipment is cross compatible. UI Health has fulltime on-site Karl Storz support and a service contract in place that covers all products. Storz is one video company that can handle all surgical specialties.
Karl Storz rigid and flexible video endoscopy equipment.
