  • 3/1/2019

  • In The News

Members now have access to Alliance Med-Surg Bed, Bari Rehab Platform 3,
and Behavioral Health Bed—as well as all other Sizewise rental equipment

 

LENEXA, Kan., March 1, 2019 – Sizewise® and Premier Inc. announce a new 3-year rental agreement for acute healthcare facilities. The contract term begins today and runs through Feb. 28, 2022, and includes several new products not previously available to rent.
 
“Our customers have been asking for more rental options, and we’re excited to finally deliver on those requests,” said Sara Rehm, Sizewise Vice President of Development. “Our Behavioral Health Bed, for instance, is on rental for the first time ever—and we’re already seeing interest from behavioral health facilities as well as acute hospitals who need this product but are not in a position to make a capital purchase.”
 
The new agreement includes all Sizewise rental bed frames, support surfaces, and mobility items—including three popular products not previously rented:

 
  • Alliance™ Med-Surg Bed: an easy-to-use, modern bed frame with built-in RSS function for bed exit alarm, protocol timer, and scale

  • Behavioral Health Bed™: the first fully-electric, ligature-resistant bed designed alongside BH clinicians. Perfect for dual-diagnosis patients who need an adjustable frame.

  • Bari Rehab Platform 3™ with Power Drive 360™: a bariatric bed with 1,000 lbs. safe working load, fully compliant with the latest IEC safety standards. Power Drive 360 provides easy navigation through crowded hospital corridors

 
Sizewise rental products are available from 65 branch locations across the U.S. and in most major metropolitan areas.
 
“Our promise is the best service in our industry,” said Rehm. “And this new contract ensures that Premier customers will continue to have access to on-time delivery, quick pick ups, and in-servicing and support whenever and wherever it’s needed. Hospitals are open 24/7/365, and so are we!”
 
The new contract, PP-MM-711, includes several Sizewise Value Adds, including:

  • Extended length-of-stay discounts for committed tiers

  • Conversion discounts for members changing from a Sizewise competitor

  • Aggregated rental discount tier pricing

  • Clinical education, algorithm development, facility rounding, product/care consultations, and more provided at no additional charge
