Atrium Medical Corp. entered into two three-year deals with Charlotte, N.C.-based group purchasing organization Premier Inc.
Premier awarded the Hudson, N.H.-based soft tissue reinforcement technology developer a contract from its group purchasing organization Premier Purchasing Partners L.P. and a dual-source surgical mesh agreement for Premier’s Accelerated Supply Chain Endeavor program participants. Premier’s network of more than 2,300 U.S.-based hospitals and over 68,000 health centers band together to negotiate contracts with medical product companies.
Atrium said members of Premier’s health center group will have access to "specially negotiated pricing and terms for Atrium’s surgical mesh products," including the company’s bioabsorbable Omega 3 fatty acid-coated surgical mesh, C-QUR. Both contracts will go into effect Oct. 1.
