Running any medical practice is expensive. Though the medical field has fewer opportunities to scale back on purchases than other businesses, there are still ways to save money by planning ahead and making smart purchases.
One way to do this is by making the decision to purchase refurbished medical equipment
instead of buying new. There are many perks to buying refurbished; here are five of the top reasons:
1. Cost Savings
It may be the most obvious benefit for buying refurbished medical equipment, but it is still a good one. The cost of inpatient hospital care is the highest in the industry, but studies have found that much of that cost involves basic supplies and equipment use. It is reasonable to assume that these high costs are also experienced at other types of healthcare facilities too. Every opportunity to save a dollar should be considered.
2. High-Quality Products
When you buy something with the label “refurbished” from a reliable medical equipment company, you can trust that the items are meticulously tested and certified to be safe and reliable.There are several key differences between FHC and the other companies selling used or refurbished medical equipment. Our company is an FDA registered refurbisher and does all of our own medical equipment refurbishing in-house. Our staff has the expertise to work with clients from the planning stage of new facilities or in equipping existing facilities and hospitals. We've completed turn-key operations for both hospital and ambulatory surgical centers since 1975. Our employees are well-trained and follow all GMP standards to assure our clients receive the best new and refurbished medical equipment you can buy.
Buying refurbished medical equipment is in a way, reducing the carbon footprint for your medical business. Finding ways to be eco-friendly when it comes to medical equipment and supplies can be difficult, but refurbished medical equipment is both a safe and smart way to act in an eco-friendly way in your medical practice.
4. Customer Service
By going through a trusted refurbished medical equipment company comes with a variety of perks for the buyer. One main perk is the customer service you’ll receive. With the right support in place, you can feel more at ease buying refurbished medical equipment that has high standards attached.
FHC has a one year parts and labor warranty on all of our refurbished equipment. All new equipment carries a one to five year parts and a one-year labor warranty depending on the item.
There are advantages in buying products that have been on the market for a while, believe it or not. When you buy the latest, greatest model of medical equipment, there is less known about it, and unknown problems can arise. An older model has had time to be tested and its kinks worked out. If a product is unsafe, it will already be off the market by the time you search for a refurbished model.
