Sage Products Awarded Sole-Source Oral Care Contract with HealthTrust

Sage Products LLC announces that it has been awarded the sole source contract for oral care products from HealthTrust Purchasing Group, LP (HPG). This is the third consecutive multi-year sole source agreement that HealthTrust has awarded to Sage.

In this challenging healthcare environment, its even more important that we demonstrate clear value to our customers. I believe we received this contract from HealthTrust because we were able to show a positive ROI, with proven clinical prevention outcomes, says Chuck Young, vice president of corporate accounts for Sage Products.

The definition of ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) has recently changed and Sage is uniquely positioned to address this new opportunity with a comprehensive approach to oral care that includes innovative products, education and compliance materials, and unique monitoring and data tracking to reduce hospital-acquired pneumoniaboth inside and outside the intensive care unit (ICU).

The breadth of Sage oral care products from 24-hour cleansing and suctioning systems in standard and petite sizes, to individual cleansing components, differentiates Sage and makes it a valuable long-term partner for HealthTrust. Prominent Sage brands include Q-Care® for comprehensive 24-hour oral care for ventilated patients and Continue CareTM for non-ventilated patients who are at risk for aspiration pneumonia.
