Getinge USA Announces Contract With Memorial Hermann Healthcare System


Getinge USA, Inc. has signed a multi-year contract with Memorial Hermann Healthcare System in Houston, Texas. The $15 million contract covers infection control equipment, service and consumables, signifying one of the largest contracts for Getinge USA in recent history.

The agreement highlights Getinge as the sole provider to the central sterile supply departments in all of Memorial Hermann’s facilities. Evolved from a long business relationship between the two entities, the pact represents both consolidation and extension of three independent contracts between the two groups.

“We feel that Getinge is a partner that always delivers more than one can expect. Their service is outstanding. The price guarantee that we get through this contract is very valuable and something that we can pass on to our end-users,” says Shirley Arthur, manager of capital purchasing for Memorial Hermann Healthcare System.

“We are incredibly proud. This is a fantastic reference and a good testament to the Getinge value proposition,” says Charles Burrage, sales service executive at Getinge USA. “The relationship we have with the Memorial Hermann is quite unique. They have made a big commitment to us by signing this contract, and we have made a big commitment to them. The longevity of our relationship, over 20 years with this new contract, is unique in this competitive world.”
