US-based healthcare company Medline has announced a new prime vendor partnership with University of Utah Health, an academic medical centre serving the Mountain West region.

Under this multi-year agreement, Medline will exclusively supply essential medical supplies to University of Utah Health’s inpatient acute care hospitals, ambulatory surgery centres and outpatient physician offices.

Medline sales director Nina Bowden said: “Medline is dedicated to providing excellent service to University of Utah Health and all healthcare providers in the region.”

The distribution will be facilitated through Medline’s recently opened 710,000ft2 centre in Salt Lake City.

This facility is said to be a part of Medline’s Healthcare Resilience Initiative, a $2bn investment to enhance the nation’s healthcare supply chain through domestic manufacturing, distribution, and IT improvements.

The partnership will also enable University of Utah Health to use advanced analytics platform of Medline to monitor key metrics and improve logistics and inventory management.
