HealthTrust Purchasing Group Awards Sterilization Wrap Agreement to Medline

Article

Medline Industries, Inc. announces that HealthTrust Purchasing Group, L.P. has awarded Medline Industries an agreement to provide its full line of instrument sterilization wraps and accessories to HealthTrust members beginning June 1, 2012. The agreement is expected to drive significant savings and efficiencies for HealthTrusts 4,000 members.

The agreement includes Medlines Gemini sterilization wraps, which provide protection for surgical instruments against contact contamination during handling and provide an effective barrier to microbial penetration. Made of a durable nonwoven, spunbond fabric (SMS), Gemini wraps provide the highest level of protection against fluids and particles. Gemini wraps are strong and resistant to tears, but the fabric is still soft so it's easy to drape.

In addition to wraps and accessories, Medline also offers HealthTrust members education courses on best practices in sterile processing and central sterile through Medline University, the companys free online educational resource.

Were excited to grow our long-standing relationship with HealthTrust with this new agreement and provide its members with high quality products and value-added services, says Alan Weiss, president of Medlines central sterile division.
