CHAMPS New Agreement with Medline Offers Members Significant Savings on Custom Procedure Trays and Sterile Packs

CHAMPS Group Purchasing announces a three-year agreement with Medline Industries, Inc. to offer CHAMPS members savings on custom procedure trays (CPT) and sterile packs. 

This new Medline contract pricing is available to CHAMPS 5,000-plus healthcare members nationwide and covers both standard and custom CPT packs. As an added benefit, this agreement offers savings on CPTs to existing Medline customers and to CHAMPS members who convert their business from another brand to Medline’s CPTs and sterile packs. The multi-million dollar agreement is expected to generate significant savings for CHAMPS members. 

Jan Elder, CHAMPS contracting director said, “CHAMPS is pleased to announce our new contract with Medline for custom procedure trays and sterile packs. This CHAMPS/Medline partnership was formed in light of the significant role Medline plays within the CHAMPS membership, both as a distributor and a supplier. This new agreement provides our members with GPO contract pricing on one of the most important product categories in their operating room budgets.” 

“We’re excited to continue partnering with CHAMPS to provide its members with quality products at significant savings,” said Mark Parry, vice president of national accounts for Medline. “As a leading manufacturer of CPTs and trays coupled with our extensive national distribution network, we will provide CHAMPS members these crucial medical supplies where and when they need them.”
