Kimberly-Clark and Novation today announced that for the first time in the history of the Kleenex(R) brand, Kimberly-Clark is offering its complete line of hand-hygiene products via an exclusive contract through NOVAPLUS(R) , the leading private-label brand for hospitals.  The new five-year agreement represents the first NOVAPLUS(R) contract for hand-hygiene products.

Through the agreement, Kleenex(R) and Scott(R) antimicrobial hand soap and washes, instant hand sanitizers, dispensers, and hand lotion will be sold and supported through the program. This provides savings of up to 20 percent to the more than 100,000 hospitals and affiliates that Novation serves, including members of VHA, UHC, Children’s Hospital Association and Provista. The effort is designed to help health care organizations — as well as educational institutions — lower costs and increase the quality of care and experience in the critical areas of hygiene compliance and infection prevention.

“Kimberly-Clark is continually impressed by Novation’s commitment to delivering unsurpassed value to members while helping them improve hand hygiene compliance and patient outcomes,” said Keith Kuchta, Vice President, Global Accounts and Strategic Partners, Kimberly-Clark.

“We are honored to have the opportunity to offer additional value to the health care providers that Novation serves by deepening our long-standing relationship and continuing our commitment to provide best-in-class quality.”
