The University awarded a contract for disposable medical supplies.
Teleflex LLC, offers a multitude of disposable medical supplies, such as Hemo-O-Lok Clip appliers, Laryngeal airway masks, epidural catheters, thrombolytic catheters, etc. The items are used in various surgical procedures, pre-anesthesia prep, laparoscopic procedures, and to dissolve clots.
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)) Teleflex LLC medical supplies have to do with direct patient care. Without access to these specific supplies the hospital would not be able to offer surgical procedures and care, which in turn would drive patients elsewhere resulting in a loss in revenue to the hospital.
