New vs. Refurbished: Benefits of Purchasing Refurbished Linear Accelerators and CT Scanners.

Should your practice or healthcare center spend mega bucks on a totally new linear accelerator and CT scanner or should you look for refurbished options? This is a question many management-level staff ask themselves when they need new equipment. Of course, they’d rather just skip all the headaches and purchase new equipment but that’s not always the best option for a practice or center that is strapped for cash and might not be able to afford the huge costs associated with new equipment. This is why it’s sometimes better to simply purchase refurbished line accelerators and CT scanners! Here are some more reasons why it’s better to go with refurbished equipment:

Allows you to focus more money on growing your business:

It doesn’t matter if you’re a new practice or simply adding a new treatment room to your facility.  Why spend all that money on new equipment when you can get the same quality and use from refurbished linear accelerators? You can easily use the extra money saved elsewhere within your practice.

This way, you’ll be able to have new equipment and treat more patients, helping your bottom line. Simply put, when you buy refurbished equipment, you have more spending power for other things in your budget that might be more vital to growing your practice.

Improve patient care:

By freeing up budget dollars with refurbished equipment, you’ll be able to use those dollars somewhere else to improve your practice and how you treat your patients. You’ll be able to improve your practice for the better, which will in turn improve patient care. Upgrades, more staff, and the like can all be used when you save extra money purchasing refurbished radiation oncology equipment.

Increased peace of mind:

Just as you would have peace of mind with a new piece of equipment, purchasing refurbished linear accelerators and CT scanners will do the same when you buy from a reputable company.  Refurbished companies that also offer service and repair services and have access to radiation oncology equipment parts are the best option when purchasing equipment.  Even though they’ve been refurbished, they come with a guarantee, so it’s almost like buying a new piece of equipment, but without the huge costs. Refurbished pieces are certified and will be delivered in working condition.
