Vizient awards Novaplus contract for facial protection to O&M Halyard, Inc.

March 8, 2019

 Halyard, now part of the Owens & Minor family and a leading global provider of solutions for the prevention of healthcare-associated infections, was awarded a new, three-year contract for facial protection with Vizient, Inc., a member-driven health care performance improvement company. 

Effective January 1, 2019, Halyard will be the provider of facial protection for hospitals and health systems utilizing the Vizient contract portfolio for these products. As an additional part of the agreement, Halyard will also manufacture Vizient’s new Novaplus line of facial protection. Novaplus is Vizient’s private-label brand of products that deliver financial value on products and services that hospitals use most frequently.

“We are continually impressed by Vizient’s commitment to delivering value for their members,” said Alex Hodges, Vice President & General Manager, Surgical & Infection Prevention, Halyard. “We are honored to have the opportunity to provide our market-leading Halyard facial protection products, reliable supply, and new value with this Novaplus contract to Vizient’s broad membership base.”

“Proper facial protection is critical in helping to prevent the spread of infection and we’re thrilled to offer our members products from Halyard, a leader in this space,” said Brent Gee, Vizient Associate Vice President of Strategic Programs. “The breadth of products in the Halyard line, combined with the new Novaplus portfolio, ensures a fit for each of our members plus the value they have come to expect.”

While Halyard and Vizient have worked together for more than 18 years, this marks the first Vizient contract signed with O&M Halyard.
