Ansell Healthcare Products Inc., a global leader in healthcare barrier protective products, has been awarded two three-year glove contracts by HealthTrust Purchasing Group (HPG), a healthcare group purchasing organization based in Nashville, Tenn.
Under the terms of the multi-source agreements, Ansell will supply its full line of latex and latex-free surgical and examination gloves to the HPG membership of more than 600 acute care facilities.
