Kimberly-Clark and Novation Forge Agreement on Sterilization Wrap
Kimberly-Clark's Kimguard Sterilization Wrap products will be supplied under a single-source, three-year purchasing agreement with Novation. It will now be available to more than 65,000 members and affiliates of VHA Inc., UHC, Children's Hospital Association, and Provista, LLC. The sterilization wrap, which is designed to protect sterilized surgical instruments in the most challenging applications, has demonstrated clinical advantages.
"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," said Chris Lowery, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Kimberly-Clark Health Care, in a statement. "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."
Kimberly-Clark was honored by Novation as "Med-Surg Supplier of the Year" earlier in 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 service to Novation's Alliance members in 2012.
Starting December 1, the agreement encompasses all Kimguard Smart-Fold, One-Step, Quick-Check. and Sequential Sterilization Wrap. For more details visit www.kimberly-clark.com.
