"At Novation, we partner with suppliers that embrace our purchasing philosophy of ensuring patient safety, environmental responsibility and cost-effectiveness to deliver total value to the members we serve," said David Gillan , Vice President of Sourcing Operations, Custom Contracting for Novation.

The members served by Novation (including members of VHA Inc., UHC, Children's Hospital Association and Provista) purchase a wide variety of reprocessed single-use medical devices from Stryker, including compression sleeves, EP catheters and laparoscopic devices. Reprocessing programs allow hospitals to reallocate their scarce resources to enhancing patient care through investments such as hiring more nurses or the purchase of much needed equipment.

"Our business is to enable hospitals and surgery centers to use their resources in a smarter way through next generation sustainable device solutions," said Kevin Liszewski , Vice President of Marketing and Corporate Accounts for Stryker Sustainability Solutions. "As Novation's nationally awarded full-service supplier for reprocessing services, we share and contribute to the financial and environmental goals of over 680 Novation-served alliance members every day. It's an honor to be recognized for the value we deliver through our strong partnership."
