Material Services

The Material Services Department at UI Hospitals and Clinics provides a comprehensive selection of patient care products in a cost-effective, efficient and convenient manner.

Our goals are to:

  • Provide reusable and disposable products that are safe for use from an operational and an epidemiological basis
  • Provide quality products at minimal expense through minimizing purchase price and maximizing process efficiencies
  • Encourage centralization of materials management functions by providing service levels that exceed the expectations of staff and patients

Our four divisions include: Processed Stores, Mail Services, Shipping and Receiving, and Linen Services. Our 90 full-time employees include storekeepers, mail handlers, sewing machine operators, supervisors, and clerical staff.
