Novation awards MYCO Medical a dual-source contract through September 2016 for its blades, non-safety scalpels and blade removal devices. Additionally, the leading medical distributor secures the exclusive private label NOVAPLUS contract for its safety scalpels. Through this three-year agreement with two one-year options, MYCO Medical – which provides high quality, innovative and affordable medical and surgical devices to the healthcare, dental and veterinary fields – will supply contracting needs to Novation’s more than 65,000 VHA, UHC and Provista member organizations and affiliates.
“MYCO is committed to bringing reliability, innovation and value to the healthcare industry, and the Novation and NOVAPLUS contract wins are a testament to our ability to provide high-quality, affordable medical devices,” said Sam Kumar, president and CEO, MYCO Medical. “Novation presenting MYCO a dual-source rather than a multi-source contract, is a significant achievement, further solidifying MYCO Medical’s position as a leader in the medical device industry.”
MYCO Medical secures its NOVAPLUS and dual-source contracts after completing Novation’s stringent bidding process, which includes providing market and product information, cross-reference and product offerings, pricing and quality and safety details. With its Novation contract, MYCO’s products represent a 30 to 40 percent cost saving difference from the market leader.
“Novation selecting MYCO, a NMSDC Certified Diversity Supplier, to represent its private label brand demonstrates its confidence in our company and the products we provide, which constitutes the greatest overall quality based on both financial and nonfinancial factors,” said Kaisar Saleem, national accounts manager, MYCO Medical.
