Hardin Memorial Health is upgrading some of its surgical equipment.
The Board of Trustees approved a business plan Monday morning to purchase orthopedic surgery power equipment from Stryker at $204,194.
It was one of two bids and higher than the $172,822 bid entered by Conmed Linvatec. However, the physicians preferred the Stryker equipment, which is used at nearly all hospitals, said Michelle Murphy, director of marketing and public relations.
“They don’t have a marketplace presence,” Murphy said of Conmed Linvatec.
