Upper Midwest Consolidate Services Center has enlisted Medline Industries as its exclusive provider of custom procedure trays.

The five-year agreement will mean a combined savings of $17 million to the 43 hospital systems that access UMCSC, Medline said. UMCSC is a member-owned healthcare supply network associated with VHA's Upper Midwest Region.

Medline's custom procedure tray program improves distribution efficiencies, product standardization and inventory optimization for procedure trays and delivers value by sharing information and working across organizational boundaries, the company said.

Medline will assemble the custom procedure trays to each hospital's exact specifications and deliver them directly to each member facility from its 40 distribution centers located throughout the United States.
