Service provided include: personal care assistance in activities of daily living, socializing activities, administration of medication, supervising and assisting in the use of durable medical equipment and prescribed therapies including those in Patient's Plan of Care.
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 Pearl at Hillside has to do with direct patient treatment and care. Without access to these specific services, the Hospital would not be able to offer proper patient care for these types of patients in need and can not be turned away. The Pearl at Hillside will provide ongoing medical care required and, due to a lack of funding or alternative options for patients, considered unfundable to receive financial coverage for care.
