First published Friday, March 18, 2022
The University awarded a contract for medical services.
Professional medical services provided to our clinical partner in Pediatrics - The purpose is to procure medical services from our clinical partner for the Department of Pediatrics in instances where the Department has tried to obtain these services internally, but have failed to successfully recruit the necessary positions. This includes, but is not limited to Advance Practice Nurse (APNs) , Register Nurse (RNs), Certified Medical Assistant (CMAs) and other personnel related to patient medical care.
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 Department of Pediatrics clinical enterprise has grown substantially from a spend of $13.0m in 2011 to $32.3m in 2021. The campus tries to fill open positions and provide services internally, but given the expanding needs and local economy, it may be difficult to fill positions. In those circumstances, it may be possible to lease these positions from OSF. The revenue generated from the medical service plan pays for these contractual medical and other clinical related services.
