The University awarded a contract for catheters, balloons, stents, and coils.
Heart and brain catheters, balloons, stents, and coils.
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)) Without these products we would not be able to provide proper care for our patients. This would turn away patients who would be able to receive these products at a different institution, resulting in a loss of revenue for the Hospital.
