Kimberly-Clark has been awarded a single-source, three-year purchasing agreement with Novation for its Kimguard Sterilization Wrap products. Under the terms of this agreement with Novation, the highest quality sterilization wrap with demonstrated clinical advantages and favorable cost benefits will be available to more than 65,000 members and affiliates of VHA Inc., UHC, Children's Hospital Association and Provista, LLC.
The agreement begins December 1, 2013 and includes all Kimguard Smart-Fold, One-Step, Quick-Check and Sequential Sterilization Wrap. Kimberly-Clark is the global leader in sterilization packaging innovation as evidenced by the recent introduction of Smart-Fold Sterilization Wrap, a revolutionary product designed to protect sterilized surgical instruments in the most challenging applications.
"This new agreement is a testament to our long-standing relationship with Novation and our commitment to provide world class products and services to hospital organizations," says Chris Lowery, vice president, sales and marketing, Kimberly-Clark Health Care. "We are excited about the opportunity to continue to provide the members served by Novation with our full line of Kimguard Sterilization Wrap products as well as access to our clinical education offerings."
Earlier this year, Kimberly-Clark was honored by Novation as Med-Surg supplier of the year and named the recipient of the second annual Mark McKenna award as overall supplier of the year in recognition of the company's outstanding service to Novation's Alliance members in 2012.
