Working in the healthcare industry is a fulfilling experience, but decommissioning a medical office is a big job. Unlike general office spaces full of desks, chairs, and cubicles, medical centers host a plethora of specialty equipment which must be recycled or disposed of in accordance with local bylaws.
At Michaels Global Trading, we work with businesses across a variety of industries, including medical professionals. With years of experience decommissioning healthcare centers, our team has the tool and knowledge necessary to organize, disassemble, and dispose of your medical equipment with ease.
Our job is to streamline your office move, merger, downsize, or closure, so you can focus on bigger things.
Types of Medical Equipment We Manage
Medical offices have a large collection of specialty devices and supplies. Some of the items in your office may be reused, recycled, or resold, while others should be disposed of separately. Michaels Global Trading helps disassemble and break down items which can be used again, or sold for parts, ensuring you get the most possible return on your investment.
Types of medical equipment we are familiar with, include:
- MRI machines
- CT machines
- X-ray machines
- Ultrasound equipment
- Surgical equipment
- Examination tables
- Specialty lighting
- Diagnostic tools
- Filing systems
- Computer equipment
- Storage devices
- Security systems
- Waiting room furnishings
We also help with the removal of disposable equipment and supplies, ensuring biomaterials are appropriately dispensed with.
What Can Be Done With Decommissioned Medical Equipment?
While some types of medical equipment must be disposed of, others may be reused. There are various repurposing methods for decommissioned medical equipment, including:
- Donation – Donating unwanted or unneeded medical supplies to charities, local organizations, or smaller medical practices in need is a fulfilling experience. Not only do you give to those with less, but you rid your office of clutter without worrying about recycle and disposal laws.
- Liquidation/Resale – If you’re closing your office, or the supplies you have are not necessary anymore, liquidation or resale are options to gain back some of your monetary investment. At Michaels Global Trading we offer professional appraisal services, providing evaluations on fair market value, orderly liquidation value, or forced liquidation value, depending on your situation and time frame.
- Recycling – Recycling is an eco-friendly waste management solution, providing a greener tomorrow for future medical practices and patients. There are many types of medical equipment that can be recycled. Even some of the larger equipment can be broken down and parts recycled or reused. Any items with glass, metal, and wiring should be thoroughly inspected to ensure they are properly recycled.
- Disposal – Finally, when all other options are exhausted, medical furnishings and equipment can be disposed of. As mentioned above, it is important to be cautious about medical equipment disposal, researching local bylaws on medical waste management and e-waste management before tossing anything into the landfill.
How equipment is dealt with as you clear your medical office is entirely up to you. Our team will help by appraising any items you wish to resell or liquidate. We can also guide you in the appropriate handling of donations and disposals.
