The University of Texas System Supply Chain Alliance has chosen Medline as its exclusive distributor for medical products. The two organizations have entered a $120 million annual partnership to bring distribution services to 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, but leaders sought to unify their distribution to 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.
