The University awarded a contract for a cardiac ultrasound system.
ACUSON SC2000 is a cardiac ultrasound system. It is used to do ultrasound imaging and analysis of the Heart. It is one of the primary imaging modalities used to diagnose heart disease, including valve issues, chamber evaluation and blood flow evaluation.
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 ultra sound has to do with direct patient care. Without access to this ultra sound machine the hospital would not be able to offer the proper patient care, which in turn would drive patients elsewhere with a loss in revenue to the hospital.
