Hospira Expands VisIV(TM) Portfolio to Offer Complete Range of Environmentally Friendly I.V. Containers
Date:12/4/2009

LAKE FOREST, Ill., Dec. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Hospira, Inc. (NYSE: HSP), a leading global specialty pharmaceutical and medication delivery company, today announced the launch of its next-generation 50 mL and 100 mL VisIV(TM) containers for intravenous (I.V.) medications and solutions, and now offers a complete size range (50 mL to 1 L) of the award-winning, environmentally responsible VisIV product. The launch of the 50 mL and 100 mL containers follows the launch of the 250 mL VisIV container in August.

The VisIV line of innovative flexible I.V. containers uses a DEHP-free (di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate) and non-PVC (polyvinyl chloride) film technology, eliminating the need for plastic overwrap waste. U.S. hospitals produce at least 6,600 tons of waste each day(i) and approximately 90 percent of all hospital patients receive some form of I.V. therapy.(ii) About 15 percent of solid waste produced by hospitals is plastics.(iii)

The 50 mL, 100 mL and 250 mL containers utilize a two-layer polyolefin film with one type of plastic for increased recyclability compared to the first-generation VisIV container, and 40 to 70 percent less plastic than traditional PVC I.V. containers of the same size. The two-layer film will become available for the 500 mL and 1 L sizes of VisIV in 2010.

"We are very pleased to now offer a complete portfolio of VisIV products to help health systems simultaneously address patient and caregiver safety and waste management," said Thomas Moore, president, Hospira U.S. commercial operations. "The addition of these new VisIV container sizes reinforces Hospira's position as a leading provider of more environmentally friendly medication administration products for all infusion needs."

The VisIV container is the first environmentally responsible large-vol
