Millennium Surgical Corp. Provides Instruments to Latter Day Saints Charities for Humanitarian Projects
Date:11/15/2011

NARBERTH, Pa, Nov. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- As any purchasing manager knows, time is money. Time spent researching purchases, comparing prices and shipping options is time lost. When purchasing surgical instruments, more than time is often at stake.

In January of 2010, Robert Edelstein, President of Millennium Surgical Corp., was contacted by Liz Howell from Latter Day Saints Charities seeking a vendor for eye surgical instruments. LDS Charities, sponsored by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, has sponsored relief and development projects in 167 countries in cooperation with charitable organizations and governments from around the world in various humanitarian initiatives.

After years of working with expensive, larger companies, Howell selected Millennium Surgical as their surgical instrument vendor. Dedicated account managers with intimate knowledge of the needs of LDS Charities simplify the process and resolve the challenge of searching for instruments individually or restating your needs with each phone call.

"The biggest challenge for LDS Charities has been acquiring high-quality surgical instruments in a timely manner for overseas shipments. Working with Millennium Surgical has helped us move more quickly to fill the requested needs," said Dean Walker who manages vision programs for LDS Charities.

After providing a Product Specialist with a list of required instrumentation, LDS Charities received a quote for more than 90% of the requested instrumentation. They also received sourcing information for the few items Millennium Surgical was unable to provide. While the streamlined communication and purchasing process was expected, what LDS Charities did not expect was such a positive response from surgeons.

The instruments purchased by LDS Charities support humanitarian vision projects in Argentina, Armenia, the Ukraine, Vietnam and two projects in the Philippines. LDS Charities has been spearheading vision projects around the world since 2002.
