More than half of the $30 billion dollars annually spent on medical equipment are for routine patient care and commoditized products. This includes foodservice equipment used in a healthcare setting, like flight dishwashers, chillers, and deep fryers. Just like when you buy beds and stretchers, best practice requires buyers to research and create price comparisons.

Researching and product vetting can get expensive and time consuming if done in person, by email, and through phone calls. To combat this, Providers can use The OpenMarkets Exchange to create new food service equipment options, quick and easy. 

Hospitals can purchase food service equipment of various categories on The Exchange - take a look at some of the categories offered: 

Here’s a quick case study from Kern Valley Healthcare in California: 

The food service directors at Kern Valley needed to purchase a deep fryer and desired to find new equipment options and a good price. Using The Exchange, they connected with three potential suppliers and chose Douglas Food Equipment over their local suppliers after Douglas quickly provided a quote for what they needed. Simple. 

Providers can connect with foodservice suppliers like Douglas Food Equipment and more, including:

Alpha Distributors - Wholesale food service equipment distributor of leading brands such as TRUE Refrigeration, Manitowoc Ice Machines, and Everpure Water Filters
