San Francisco, CA, United States, 2008/04/08 - A recent national survey of doctors, nurses and medical practitioners reveals that 64% of medical professionals favor leasing medical equipment over purchasing it.
A new study commissioned by Lease One affiliate, reveals a trend in the medical community that favors leasing medical equipment over purchasing it. Leasing with Crystal is a financial services company that provides flexible and creative asset-based financing for its clients, including working capital loans for doctors of up to 150k.
In its survey of medical professionals across the country who were looking to replace aging medical equipment, Leasing with Crystal found that an overwhelming majority—64% to be precise—concludes that leasing is the best option. 17% still believe financing is the way to go while 19% of those surveyed remain undecided.
“This study reveals a lot about the medical industry’s economical sense,” stated Crystal Riley, CEO Leasing With Crystal. “While purchasing the equipment still remains a viable option, more and more professionals are seeing the true value in leasing.”
Riley notes that leasing medical equipment is an optimal solution for both medical professionals and patients seeking the best care. Leasing allows a doctor to house the most up-to-date healthcare equipment and subsequently build a state-of-the-art facility without the costs associated with owning expensive equipment.
By purchasing today’s advanced medical equipment, a medical professional could be stuck with a device that has been rendered archaic by the mere passing of a few years. Leasing the equipment for a specific term allows medical professionals to keep their technology fresh.
What’s more, by keeping high-tech machinery like MRI and X-Ray machines in house, doctors won’t have to outsource simple diagnostic procedures. This results in a more convenient patient experience and reduces the amount of travel time a patient will need to make between locations.
While medical equipment remains a focus of Leasing with Crystal, the company is equally skilled at equipment financing for other industries, acquisition financing for MDs, commercial auto and truck leasing, municipality leasing, sale and lease-back programs, asset backed financing, commercial Real Estate financing, and more.
