The University awarded a contract for medical staffing support.
Weatherby Healthcare will provide staffing support of Pediatric Critical Care Physicians for Locum Tenens coverage for the UIC Department of Pediatrics.
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 service will allow for the continuance of our pediatric critical care services. With the departure of our Peds Critical Care Provider MD on 8/1/19, the division is in need of a temporary physician support. Recruitment is underway for a replacement with an anticipated start date sometime in 2021. Until then the division needs to provide the same standard of care for Pediatric Critical Care Patients.
