There are a number of advantages that medical facilities will benefit from when buying refurbished medical equipment and supplies over brand new.
Of course the very first advantage seen with buying refurbished linear accelerators or CT scanners
or any large scaled item is that it will save you money! With the cost
of large scaled medical equipment reaching easily into the millions we
are talking about a significant savings. A new linear accelerator can
costs between three and four million dollars. Buying a refurbished
unit, even at a thirty percent discount saves the facility one point two
million dollars. That is a huge savings!
The one major concern
many facilities have is that the savings they are seeing in buying a
refurbished unit will be spent on serving the unit. The truth is that
refurbished equipment is just as reliable as brand new equipment with

medical equipment is incredibly thorough. Highly skilled, trained
Biomedical Professionals work to restore each piece of equipment back to
its original form. Refurbished equipment including linear accelerators
aren’t put on the market to be sold until it has gone through arduous
testing, assessments, and has support documentation detailing the unit
