In a report issued by the Millennium Research Group (MGR) "U.S. Markets for Reprocessed Devices 2009," the market growth in the United States for Reprocessed Devices is expected to exceed 12 percent annually through 2013.
The reason? Hospitals are being forced to lower their spending because of the global economic crisis and the rising cost of health care. This has led those in the health care fields to look to lower-priced products like reprocessed devices, which saves them roughly 40 to 60% than it would cost to purchase original, new manufactured equipment.
According to the American Hospital Association, hospitals in the U.S. have reported losses in the third quarter of 2008. Many of them have have laid off staff and are postponing renovations and expansions. Also, because of the economy, many patients will lose their jobs and lose their health insurance at the same time.
