The University awarded a contract for upper extremity implants and ancillaries.
Skeletal Dynamics offers upper extremity implants and ancillaries consisting of plates, screws, and other parts for the surgical repair and stabilization of wrist, forearm, and hands.
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)) The Skeletal Dynamics implants have to do with direct patient treatment and care. Without access to these specific supplies, the Hospital would not be able to deliver proper care to patients under the University's care and would drive patients elsewhere and result in a loss of revenue to the Hospital.
