Medline was awarded a laboratory prime vendor agreement

On Feb. 6, Medline announced via a press release that Omaha-headquartered Children’s Nebraska has expanded its partnership with Medline by awarding the healthcare supplier and manufacturer a laboratory prime vendor agreement. The agreement is an extension of Medline’s existing relationship with Children’s Nebraska—Medline has been Children’s Nebraska medical-surgical prime vendor since 2013.

Children’s Nebraska is the only full-service, pediatric hospital and medical center in the state.

As part of the agreement, Medline is providing a portfolio of lab testing materials, consumables and equipment to Children’s Nebraska main lab and its 20+ outreach specialty clinics. Medline also helps enable Children’s Nebraska to monitor key metrics, like item utilization, contract compliance, price accuracy and spend by product categories.

Children’s Nebraska lab division can now leverage Medline’s logistics and warehousing capabilities to control next day deliveries to its lab facilities. Children’s Nebraska, according to the press release, hopes to lean into Medline expertise in lab capital as well as lab automation in the near future.
