Soma Technology is proud to announce the redesign of our Capital Medical Equipment Rental Page. We believe that renting medical equipment should be quick. We have rental options widely available for hospitals to stay on budget, and on track with their patient census and healthcare options. Rentals ensure equipment availability to meet immediate needs, freedom from technical obsolescence, ability to access equipment without delay, and to ensure management of resources. Medical equipment can be rented for a short or long term with the option to own.
Why Rent From Soma Technology?
There are many reasons why hospitals and surgical centers choose to rent medical equipment. Sometimes, in a hurry, surgical centers will have scheduled patient’s surgeries with much time in advance. Due to their critical nature, these surgeries cannot be canceled if a machine is failing. Often, rentals are because a piece of equipment is down in the emergency room or surgical suite, and they need that piece for an operation.
There are critical scenarios where there will be a sharp increase in patient census. This is usually the case for flu season. An increase in patients equates to an increased need in medical equipment. During the flu season, we are approached by a multitude of institutions for ventilators, patient monitors, and infusion pumps.
Sometimes, people would like to try out equipment before they buy it. If they do end up buying, this is called the rent-to-own option. Some hospitals and medical staff are accustomed to using a certain piece of equipment. If this piece of equipment has been discontinued, we likely have it available in our large inventory.
Hospital budgets are always the main concern of buyers of medical equipment. We pride ourselves on supplying refurbished medical equipment which costs almost 50% less than new equipment. This allows for hospitals and surgical centers to buy more equipment at a lower cost than new. This smaller allocation of the budget allows for the hospital to divert funds to other projects including medical care, research, and employment.
