As COVID-19 vaccines continue to be administered, health care systems and other entities are scrambling to build new vaccination sites. Whether repurposing existing space or building from the ground up, equipment needed for these sites must be specified, approved, ordered, assembled, and delivered quickly and efficiently. Associates at CME Corp, a national healthcare equipment distributor, are experts in capital equipment, logistics and technical services.
Here are three ways CME can help you source the appropriate equipment, get it delivered direct to your site, and perform the electrical checks and asset-tagging needed to get your vaccination clinic up and running.
Finding the Right Equipment promptly
Few distributors can fully outfit a vaccination clinic. CME, representing over 2,000 equipment manufacturers and 2M products, can provide most, if not all, of the equipment needed. Clinic equipment can include furniture, vital signs monitors, temporary walls/privacy screens, storage solutions, supply carts, floor/other signage, pulse oximeters, AEDs, refrigerators, freezers, coffee makers, vaccination workstations, thermometers, isolation stations, PPE dispensers, and workstations on wheels (WOWs).
CME can quickly source available items and give you a fast, comprehensive quote, while also offering some high-quality, cost-saving alternatives.
Deliver the Equipment Directly to the Appropriate Rooms
CME has 30+ service centers across the US ready to receive, warehouse, stage, assemble, and deliver your vaccination clinic equipment in one delivery, direct to your site when you need it. Our trained, professional installers seamlessly set up your clinic, mount items to walls, and perform hardware integration and cable management for your WOWs. Once all the items are delivered to our local service center, we schedule your delivery and installation within your timeframe, not ours.
Perform Biomedical electrical checks and asset-tagging
COVID-19 vaccination clinics need to be constructed and opened quickly, and often there are no biomedical technicians available to do incoming equipment checks. CME employs biomedical technicians across the country who are trained to perform these important and necessary checks, including documenting and asset-tagging new equipment. We can augment a hospital biomedical department or set up protocols for other entities that are administering vaccines.
If you are planning a new vaccination clinic, call CME at 800-338-2372. We will make your experience easy, fast, and efficient.
With two corporate offices and 35+ service centers, our mission is to help healthcare facilities nationwide reduce the cost of the equipment they purchase, make their equipment specification, delivery, installation, and maintenance processes more efficient, and help them seamlessly launch, renovate and expand on schedule.
