CHAMPS GPO and HARTMANN Launch Contracts for Incontinence, Skin Integrity and Bandages, Dressings & Gauze

CHAMPS GPO and HARTMANN Launch Contracts for Incontinence, Skin Integrity and Bandages, Dressings & Gauze CHAMPS Group Purchasing announces new custom contracts for HARTMANN products in three categories: incontinence, skin integrity, as well as bandages, dressings and gauze. These three-year HARTMANN contracts, which include their entire portfolio of products, are available to CHAMPS’ 7,000+ member locations nationwide, without restriction.

“CHAMPS is delighted to announce the addition of HARTMANN to our list of GPO contract vendors,” said Jan Elder, director of contracting. “This suite of contracts was developed in our ongoing quest to find opportunities to drive savings in these significant categories. We know this new partnership will be appreciated by all CHAMPS members.”

The HARTMANN contracts provide CHAMPS members with a broad range of high-performance product solutions that are respected for their top quality and used by CHAMPS members in all classes of trade. Contract highlights include:

  • High-performance elastic bandages made from the finest quality yarns for superior compression, comfort and durability.
  • Breakthrough incontinence innovations such as Dignity Briefs with Curly Fiber, MoliCare Premium Briefs, MoliCare Mobile Disposable Protective Underwear and MoliMed pads – all of which use proprietary “curly fiber” to instantly reduce the high pH of voids to the skin-friendly range of pH 4.5 to 5.5.
  • Clinically effective wound dressings designed to promote the healing process.
  • Multilayer compression bandaging systems for the prevention of venous leg ulcers.
  • A wide range of elastic and cohesive bandages, athletic tapes and wound care products used by athletic trainers from high school to the pros.

“We are very excited about this opportunity to expand our product offerings with CHAMPS,” said Bobbie Camp, HARTMANN director of national accounts. “It is a great opportunity to showcase our full portfolio of world-class products and services.”
