Novation awards contract to Cook Medical for peripheral vascular products


Cook Medical has announced a new contract with leading health care supply chain and contracting company Novation for Cook’s peripheral intervention and peripheral diagnostic devices. 

Cook peripheral vascular products under this contract will be offered to the more than 65,000 members and affiliates of VHA, UHC, Children’s Hospital Association and Provista, all served by Novation. 

The contract, which goes into effect 1 January 2013, will cover devices in Cook’s peripheral vascular intervention and diagnostics portfolio, which include access and biopsy needles, balloons, balloon stents, diagnostic wire guides and catheters, interventional wire guides, embolization coils, self-expanding stents and vena cava filters.

“We are pleased to continue our strong partnership with Novation,” said David Reed, vice president of Healthcare Business Solutions at Cook Medical. “As our portfolio of minimally invasive peripheral vascular products grows, comprehensive contracts like this one with Novation are critical to our ability to reach a diverse group of institutions and make our technology widely accessible, particularly to academic medical centres, which we think play a valuable and important role in health care.”
