The University awarded a contract for a closed baby incubator.
Closed Baby Incubator.
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)) This incubator touches the patient directly as it is used to hold newborns. The goal of the Giraffe OmniBed Carestation is to minimize stressful touches by reducing the need to move or reposition the baby through technologies like the one-touch canopy lift, which converts the Carestation into a radiant warmer without disturbing the baby.
