Stryker (NYSE:SYK) said today it acquired single-use-device reprocessor Hygia Health Services for an undisclosed amount.
Birmingham, Ala.-based Hygia has partnered with Kalamazoo, Mich.-based Stryker since 2015 to reprocess single-use devices, and Stryker said the acquisition will “further solidify the partnership.”
Stryker said that Hygia’s product portfolio of air transfer mattresses, fall alarms, ECG leads, cerebral-somatic sensors and infusor bags will help broaden its reprocessing offerings.
“In line with our commitment to help hospitals and health systems increase the value their SUD reprocessing programs deliver, this acquisition will enhance our ability to deliver savings to our customers. Furthermore, our broader product portfolio will help customers elevate their sustainability goals and set a higher bar for sustainable healthcare delivery,” Stryker sustainability solutions prez Brian White said in a prepared statement.
Last week, Stryker saw shares fall slightly after it posted first quarter earnings that topped Wall Street expectations but saw sales shrink slightly.
