Medline will have more than 4.5 Billion in sales to Hospitals, Nursing Homes, Surgery Centers and retailers such as Walgreens. Your school can place orders online, via phone or fax. Medline has 30 warehouses placed across the USA, so all schools should receive 48 hour delivery, on Medline orders, no matter where their location.
To receive the special APSCU pricing, just call 1-800-MEDLINE and ask for your Medline rep. Medline would be happy to assist in creating a formulary of items used by your school. Medline can cross reference your existing products to ensure an apples to apples price comparison.
