First published Thursday, January 26, 2023
The University awarded a contract for medical supplies and services.
The supplies and services provided by Rockwell Medical Inc., are essential for the delivery of hemodialysis treatments to our patients. Rockwell Medical Inc., is the only vendor able to provide pump-in services to the outpatient dialysis unit. Without access to this service, patient care can be disrupted and the Hospital would not be able to offer dialysis services to patients, which in turn would drive patient to seek care elsewhere, resulting in loss of revenue to the hospital.
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)) Pricing has remained the same in the past 4 years, but Dialysis is negotiating a new pricing agreement for the new term.

The State of Illinois has a policy to encourage prospective vendors to hire qualified veterans, minorities, females, persons with disabilities and ex-offenders.
