The University awarded a contract for Endoscopy Equipment.
Endoscopy equipment used to record internal images of the gastrointestinal tract for use in disease diagnosis.
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)) Endoscopy equipment is needed to visually examine the upper digestive system. If the physician sees anything unusual, such as polyps or cancer, he or she passes special surgical tools through the endoscope to remove tissue or collect a sample to examine it more closely. These internal images are needed to properly treat patients and reach a final diagnosis. It will ensure that UI Health will continue to provide high quality treatment for our patients.
