It’s not unusual for patients to complain about the cost of medical care. Like the price of gasoline, some people won’t be satisfied no matter how affordable it is! But patients often overlook the fact that costs are increasing for their healthcare providers as well. As expenses continue to rise across the board, many hospitals and surgical facilities are looking for ways to improve cost-effectiveness without reducing the quality of care for their patients. Using refurbished medical equipment is one way to accomplish this goal.

There are several benefits of refurbished medical equipment.

  • It can save your facility lots of money. This may be stating the obvious, but it bears repeating. The price of refurbished medical equipment is a fraction of the cost of buying new.
  • There are different types of refurbishment. You may not need to fully refurbish a piece of equipment in order to improve its appearance or function. You only pay for what you need. For example, we can do a visual and/or partial refurbishment on case carts that will make them look and move like new.
  • It allows you to spend strategically. There are some pieces of medical equipment that must be bought new. Saving money where you can by using refurbished equipment allows you to allocate those savings to the purchase of brand new or more expensive equipment.

Transparency Market Research conducted a study on the use of refurbished medical equipment.
