Medline has expanded its prime vendor contract with New York-based St. Johnland Nursing Center to provide all capital equipment and furnishings for the post-acute care organization’s new assisted living facility, expected to open to residents in fall 2022.
The new agreement is an extension of Medline’s 30-plus year medical supply prime vendor partnership with St. Johnland for the company’s skilled nursing facility. Through the new capital equipment and furnishings contract, more than 10 product divisions at Medline are collaborating to help the company build out the new facility with supplies like furniture, hand sanitizers, window treatments, paper goods and more. St Johnland is leveraging Medline’s white-glove delivery service to deliver, assemble and install all equipment and furnishings.
“To maintain the highest standard of care, we need to stay on top of the changing healthcare needs of our community. Medline understands the evolving challenges in running a healthcare organization and has always focused on providing us with high quality products to meet our clinical and operational goals. We knew the company would be the best partner to help us outfit our new facility,” said Mary Jean Weber, CEO of St. Johnland Nursing Center.
St. Johnland has been a prominent care organization on Long Island for 150-plus years. The new 100-bed assisted living facility will be on the same campus as its skilled nursing home and focus on serving individuals enrolled in Medicaid, which Weber anticipates will account for roughly 80% of residents.
“We are honored to have the opportunity to continue growing our partnership with St. Johnland as the organization expands its care services. Helping Weber and her team build out their new facility has been a multi-year project made possible due to the expertise across all our Medline divisions. Our goal is to leverage that internal collaboration to provide St. Johnland with reliable service to help healthcare run better,” said John Piazza, sales representative, Medline Post-Acute Care.
