Delaying the opening of a 20-doctor clinic can cost a healthcare system over $100,000 in revenue a day. Delaying the opening of a hospital can cost over $400,000 a day. It’s essential to open on time but the construction or remodeling of a medical facility is never easy.
There is so much to manage and coordinate, and unless carefully managed, deadlines slip by and things go wrong. That's why it's so important to enlist the help of a medical equipment specialist who has the resources, experience and ability to coordinate medical equipment purchasing and logistics and see the project through to successful completion on schedule.
Working With the Right Medical Equipment Specialists
The best way to avoid delays and have an efficient equipment installation is to choose a medical equipment distributor that can demonstrate the ability to effectively manage medical equipment purchasing and delivery logistics. CME has been in this business for more than 30 years, and our entire business is focused on medical equipment procurement, logistics, delivery and installation.
Our highly capable team has an impressive track record of on-time equipment delivery and installation. What's more, we have access to equipment from over 1,400 manufacturers. We can select the best equipment to meet your needs, and our buying power ensures that you get the best deal. It's our policy to leave nothing to chance.
All work is planned thoroughly in great detail, and every aspect of equipment sourcing, procurement, delivery and installation is carefully managed. If something does go wrong, we focus all our energies to bring the project back on track.
Managing Equipment Procurement, Storage, and Installation
We know from experience that the best place to start is right at the beginning of a medical construction project and, working with equipment planners, designers and architects, to identify the equipment that's needed and where to put it. This approach means medical equipment requirements are incorporated into the building's design and minimizes the need for costly building alterations when equipment requirements were not properly considered.
Our medical equipment purchasing professionals will help you source the best equipment at the best price. Once orders are placed, our expeditors organize and streamline procurement and delivery of the equipment to our warehouse facilities where we stage and store it safely until installation. Our experienced team ensures that every item is properly cataloged and carefully stored to avoid damage or loss.
If the equipment needs to be assembled before delivery, we will do this, and when scheduled, deliver direct-to-site. We can also install any equipment to walls, tables or floors. We manage the entire process from PO creation to delivery and installation. We also have a team of Biomedical Engineers that can help test, repair, and maintain your new equipment.
