The Surgery Center of Fort Wayne (Ind.) has tapped medical supplier Medline as its prime vendor as part of a new, multiyear partnership.
The independent ASC features two operating rooms designed for joint, spine and pain management procedures, according to a Jan. 24 press release from Medline.
As part of the five-year agreement, the ASC has access to Medline's medical surgical portfolio, including custom surgical packs, pharma, ASC capital and other necessary equipment and supplies.
The center's team members will also have the ability to monitor key metrics such as item utilization, contract compliance, price accuracy and spend by product categories through Medline's analytics platform.
Medline first forged a partnership with the ASC in 2020, when it helped to open the facility by improving inventory and easing clinician workloads. Medline also has a partnership with the ASC's sister location in Indianapolis.
