Mundelein, Ill., Oct. 3, 2016

A new Health Industry Distributors Association (HIDA) study shows that manufacturers and distributors are playing a more critical role in helping healthcare providers deliver the best possible patient care and experience.

HealthTrust – whose membership is made up of healthcare facilities across the continuum of care, recognizes that the right medical supplier can impact a provider’s clinical and financial success and selected Medline as its Supplier of the Year. As both a manufacturer and distributor of more than 350,000 products and clinical solutions, Medline delivers high-quality, cost-effective medical products, clinical solutions and operational efficiencies for HealthTrust members.
