How Medical Missions Across the Globe Are Benefiting from Equipment Rental

January 22, 2019

In today‚Äôs healthcare industry, budgets are being pinched and practitioners are being expected to do more with less. In order to meet these challenges, facilities across the globe are utilizing rental equipment to add versatility to their inventories while decreasing operating costs.  

Renting Equipment Takes the Stress Out of Planning for a Medical Mission Abroad

Avante Global Outreach and Development supplies medical equipment to non-profit groups, medical missions, clinics, and hospitals worldwide. In addition to a wide range of medical equipment options, Avante Global Outreach provides specialized, short-term rental equipment packages to fulfill the unique needs of many medical missions.  

How is rental equipment beneficial for the medical mission customer base?  

Plan for short-term mission work  

Rental equipment is a great choice for medical missions, but it is especially useful for short-term programs that offer temporary services in non-permanent spaces. Our mission clients sometimes perform surgeries in established clinics but their particular surgical specialty is a temporary service. Choosing to rent medical equipment for these short-term uses prevents medical equipment from going unused in clinics by allowing our clients to get the exact equipment they need and then return it to be used by another organization in the future.  

Find specialized equipment  

Mission work also comes with its own unique equipment challenges. For example, electrical power can sometimes be limited where our clients are working so simpler, manually-operated exam and surgery tables are preferred. Manual surgical tables are usually not preferred in most modernized operating rooms, which can make it hard to repurpose medical equipment after a short-term mission trip. Avante Global Outreach offers rental opportunities on medical equipment specifically selected for mission work, helping them to focus on other important aspects of their trips.  

Increase budget flexibility  

Mission work requires a lot from our clients. They usually are taking time off from their work and everyday lives to focus on helping others. We also see a lot of clients who are financing portions of their own mission trips, and any wiggle room I can find in their budget can go towards the many other expenses required to complete a medical mission trip: medicines, travel fees, and more. Renting equipment from a reputable organization allows medical mission volunteers to find the best equipment for their needs, at the right price point.
