If opening a doctor's office or clinic, consider used and refurbished medical equipment to outfit your office. Many types of used medical equipment will serve your needs just as well as new equipment but for less cost. Suppliers of used and refurbished medical equipment thoroughly test equipment before they resell it, ensuring you get a good bargain.

This equipment can provide electronic instruments, exam beds, stretchers, gurneys, anesthesia machines, monitors, defibrillators, surgical tables and many other items. Ensure you’re making the most of used and refurbished medical equipment by buying from a reliable used medical equipment supplier.
1. Consider specialized used medical equipment for your practice or clinic.
2. List the type of used hospital equipment needed to furnish your lobby, office and exam rooms.
3. Decide what type of used medical devices your office will need.
Find specialized used medical equipment for your officeLarge diagnostic equipment represents a major expense for a doctor's office. Surgical equipment can also consume a significant portion of the budget. Some vendors specialize in selling used and refurbished medical equipment of this type.
Outfit exam rooms with budget-friendly used medical equipmentA doctor's office or clinic will need certain furniture for exam rooms, x-ray rooms, office, waiting room or laboratory area. Suppliers of used and refurbished medical equipment stock such equipment such as exam tables, carts, stretchers and lamps.
Decide what basic used medical devices your office needsAll doctors' offices and clinics require certain types of medical devices. Some devices such as blood pressure cuffs, EKG machines, and scales show up in every office. If out-patient surgery occurs in your clinic, you may decide that used surgical equipment such as scalpels, surgical gowns, IV drips and other items can provide the same value as new equipment.
- Unlike new equipment, a company may only have used and refurbished medical equipment models for a short time or in limited quantities. Don't wait too long to make your choice because the item you need could suddenly become unavailable.
