Baltimore, MD – July 17, 2017 – Pevco has been awarded a group purchasing agreement for Pneumatic Tube Systems with Premier. Effective May 1, 2017, the new agreement allows Premier members, at their discretion, to take advantage of special pricing and terms pre-negotiated by Premier for new and upgraded pneumatic tube systems. Pneumatic tube systems are used by healthcare professionals to quickly and safely transport drugs, lab specimens and blood products throughout hospital campuses.

Knowing what was sent, when it was sent, where it arrived, when it arrived and even who sent and received it reduces waste and expedites care.
