Domestic Segment

The Company's Domestic Segment offers a portfolio of products and services to healthcare providers and manufacturers in the United States. Its portfolio of medical and surgical supplies includes branded products purchased from manufacturers and its own private-label products, which are internally sourced through its sourcing capabilities abroad or through a select group of manufacturers. It stores its products at its distribution centers and provides delivery of these products, along with related services, to healthcare providers around the nation. Its packaging capabilities offers the packaging of instruments and supplies into custom and minor procedure kits and trays, which are assembled and delivered based on the specifications provided by the healthcare provider customer. For sterilized kits and trays, it utilizes one or more third-party sterilization contractors.

The Domestic segment offers additional services to healthcare providers, including supplier management, analytics, inventory management, outsourced resource management, clinical supply management and business process consulting. These services help providers in their process for contracting with vendors, purchasing supplies and streamlining inventory. These services include its operating room-focused inventory management program that helps healthcare providers manage suture and endo-mechanical inventory, as well as its customizable surgical supply service that includes the packaging and delivery of surgical supplies in procedure-based totes to coincide with the healthcare providers' surgical schedule. It also offers a variety of programs and services to provide logistics and marketing solutions to its manufacturer customers as well.
