Purchasing Professionals

purchasing_subpage

As the purchasing professional, you’re concerned about healthcare costs. Costs of the O.R., operating expenses, costs for your hospital.

You may be integrating Environmentally Preferable Purchasing (EPP) into the mix. Perhaps your facility reprocesses surgical products as a way to achieve sustainability saving money and tons of waste per year.

 

Our goal is to reduce or eliminate single-use disposable plastic products in the O.R. – by replacing them with high performance products made with sustainable materials or redesigning these product for multiple uses and closing the loop on waste going to landfill.

 

Our mission is to create cost effective product solutions that allow you and your team to make a difference toward hospital sustainability objectives and EPP goals.

 

NewGen Surgical delivers the same industry standard surgical products your surgeons are familiar with, but made with sustainable materials that minimize the environmental footprint.

Most hospitals and surgeons want to be as sustainable as possible – especially with something like this – the NGS35W skin stapler – an easy change to make that can have an impact.”
