Iowa Specialty Hospital Saves on Exam Tables by Buying Refurbished

Buying refurbished equipment ensures that healthcare providers get high-quality equipment from their favorite manufacturers while beingable to put more money back into their organization. This is especially important for smaller, specialized providers like Iowa Specialty Hospital & Clinics in Belmond, IA. 

One of the successes Iowa Specialty found on the OpenMarkets platform is when looking for 14 Brewer 6500 Access High Low Exam Tables for one of their new centers.

After submitting the initial request-for-quote (RFQ), Iowa Specialty was connected with 12 Suppliers and received more than 10 quotes for the tables. After reviewing all the options on the OpenMarkets platform, Iowa Specialty decided to go with the quote from Alternative source Medical. ASM supplied their first quote just a day after Iowa Specialty had submitted the request, and they closed the deal efficiently and effectively by attaching product brochures and staying in communication with the team throughout the whole process.

Through their deal with ASM on OpenMarkets, Iowa Specialty Hospital was able to purchase $65k worth of refurbished Brewer exam tables for their new center!
