For healthcare providers, ReNewal can help lower medical device costs 50% year after year; on average, between $200,000 and $2 million per facility. The OnDemand online ordering platform also makes it easy for customers to track the flow of collected and reprocessed devices.
Helping healthcare systems ‘balance competing priorities’
Currently, ReNewal works with 2,000 healthcare facilities on medical device reprocessing. This includes The University of Kansas, which reprocessed 14,000 instruments in 2022, diverting 6,911 pounds of medical device waste from landfills at a savings of $1.2 million1.
“Over the last year, we really focused on expanding our product portfolio for reprocessing, concentrated on collections and creating strong partnerships with physicians and clinical staff using these products,” said Chris Heath, system director, clinical supply chain optimization, The University of Kansas Health System. “Environmental sustainability is important to our health system, and the success of this program demonstrates our commitment to both patients and the communities we serve.”
“Every day, healthcare systems are asked to balance competing priorities—to cut costs, improve care quality and reduce waste,” said Czajka. “Medline ReNewal is extending the life of single-use devices without compromising clinical quality or patient safety. This is a win-win situation for our customers and the environment. We are thrilled to be part of the solution, and thrilled to celebrate this expanded facility.”
