University of Texas System and Medline to Enhance Supply Chain Strategy and Outcomes

Leading provider in Texas signs Medline as its exclusive distributor for medical products

By Medline Newsroom Staff | June 29, 2020

Medline today announced a $120 million annual partnership with The University of Texas System Supply Chain Alliance.  This award provides distribution services to the UT System’s three acute care institutions: UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, UT MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, and UT Medical Branch in Galveston.

Prior to choosing Medline as their MedSurg Distributor, the three institutions were using different distributors. Now, their distribution is integrated across all three institutions under one vendor.

“The UT System Supply Chain Alliance worked through a competitive process and based this choice off of the level of service that could be provided today and in the future. They’ve identified Medline as an organization they could forge a long-term collaboration with and we’re excited to dive in,” says Brian Adcock, vice president of corporate sales, Medline.

Medline leveraged multiple teams by giving branch tours, conducting logistical assessments and countless meetings, and by continuing to build relationships with the accounts.

“Ultimately,” says Adcock, “the UT System Supply Chain Alliance chose Medline because of our ability to be an integrated partner on a path towards a best-in-class supply chain.”
