The University awarded a contract for sterilization supplies.
Steris Corp offers instrument cleaners and detergents that are used in the sterilization and reprocessing of surgical instruments and equipment. These instruments are used in surgery and direct patient contact.
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 medical supplies from Steris Corp have to do with direct patient care. Without access to these sterilization cleaners and detergents the hospital would not be able to offer the proper patient care, which in tern would drive patients elsewhere and a loss in revenue to the hospital.
