Surgical Specialties Corporation Announces Three Year Suture Products Agreement with Premier, Inc

Surgical Specialties Corporation announced that it has been awarded a group purchasing agreement with Premier Inc. to provide its recently expanded portfolio of suture products to Premier's extensive network of 3,400 hospitals and 110,000 healthcare providers. The three year agreement will be effective on April 1, 2015. The start of this new contract coincides with the planned expansion of the Sharpoint line of sutures for use in more advanced surgical procedures, in addition to the current micro and ophthalmic surgery offerings. The new Sharpoint Plus Surgical Suture incorporates a new needle design and expanded options, created for and with the support of multi-specialty surgeon users. The upgraded needles offer smooth penetration on first and multiple passes, a desired quality for more advanced wound closure applications, such as plastic surgery. Sharpoint Plus Surgical Suture joins Sharpoint Microsuture and Opthalmic Suture, and Quill Knotless Tissue-Closure to allow for a comprehensive portfolio of advanced wound closure products to be purchased by Premier members from Surgical Specialities Corp. and its' nationwide network of authorized distributors.
