First published Thursday, August 25, 2022
The University awarded a contract for Clinical Laboratory Testing Services.
The laboratory sends out testing for hospital patients which cannot be performed in our in-house laboratory. ARUP Laboratories provides a wide range of testing and is the largest referral laboratory in use by the University of Illinois Hospital Pathology Laboratories.
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 laboratory would have a significant expense of labor and equipment to bring all of this testing in-house. ARUP is by far the most used referral laboratory. Every effort is made to bring testing in-house when feasible both logistically and financially, and all testing is reviewed by the Laboratory Practice and Utilization Committee comprised of the principal Pathologists at University of Illinois Hospital. Without use of ARUP the lab would still need to send these tests out to other vendors at a higher cost and turnaround time for test results.
