Northfield, Ill., Mar. 5, 2024 – Medline today announced it has entered into a multi-year prime vendor distribution agreement with Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN), one of the nation’s leading health networks, offering comprehensive care in 95 clinical specialties across 13 hospital campuses in service of patients across eastern Pennsylvania.

After extensive supplier due diligence and evaluation of the system’s future needs, Medline has been selected as the exclusive provider of medical and surgical supplies across the system’s 13 acute care hospital campuses. The two organizations will collaborate to ensure best-in-class supply chain operations and product availability to meet the product needs of the providers and patients throughout this complex, expansive geography.

“Lehigh Valley Health Network is pleased to partner with Medline. Streamlined access to medical and surgical supplies is key in providing our physicians, clinicians and staff with the tools they need to provide for our patients each and every day,” said Nita Stith, vice president of supply chain for Lehigh Valley Health Network.

Together, Medline and LVHN will focus on developing innovative solutions to create a leaner, more efficient supply chain across the entire health system. LVHN and Medline will continue to collaborate on cost containment initiatives, as well as actively work together to drive supply savings in the future.

“We are thrilled to announce our partnership with LVHN,” said Kevin Silberstein, executive account director for Medline. “LVHN shares Medline’s commitment to modernizing the supply chain and developing innovative healthcare solutions. This partnership is about building a strong foundation for the future, and we are excited to be a part of that journey with LVHN.”

Serviced by Medline’s one-million-square-foot distribution center located in Perryville, Maryland, the LVHN hospital campuses will benefit from streamlined demand planning and inventory management with a low unit of measure (LUM) program, enabling the system to order items to be picked and shipped daily to meet the forecasted needs of each campus.
