Medical facilities that are looking to buy new or refurbished medical equipment are presented with a task that seems quite overwhelming. To find quality equipment and supplies for your medical practice or hospital it is important to find a reliable company to work with. A company that will supply new and refurbished equipment while linking with a superior maintenance and repair support center is something all medical facilities look for.
Consider the following questions prior to selecting a company to work with in purchasing new and refurbished medical equipment and supplies.
- When purchasing equipment and supplies from your company what is the price difference between buying new and refurbished medical equipment?
- Are there features on the equipment that are not needed that we are paying additional for?
- How long has your company been doing business with medical facilities? Do you have recent referrals that we can speak with that have bought new and refurbished medical equipment? What do you offer to your clients that make you a more reputable supplier than other companies in the industry?
- What is the process that is followed to refurbish medical equipment?
At times it will be a more realistic to buy new medical equipment over refurbished. Sometimes the price difference will not be enough of a difference to merit purchasing refurbished equipment over new. Some products like step stools, bed pans and stainless steel supplies don’t save enough in the long run for it to be necessary to consider buying refurbished. Purchasing these items new will guarantee the cosmetic and operational functions without affecting longevity.
Other times, when purchasing larger pieces of equipment such as operating tables, stretchers, patient monitors and such the savings may be quite significant in purchasing refurbished over new. The savings have been known to be upwards of fifty percent. When looking at the overall expense of larger medical equipment like linear accelerators and ct scanners the savings can be quite substantial.
Be wary of purchasing refurbished equipment is paying for features that your facility does not need. If your facility has a policy against treating patients with a body weight over five hundred pounds then a surgical table rated for a thousand pounds would be useless. A quality supplier will understand what you need and will not try to sell you a product that does not fit that need. Suppliers of medical equipment, new and refurbished, are in the business to build relationships not to rip clients off by selling them equipment with features that are unneeded.
