Moving a Medical Office in NYC? Everything You Need to Know.
Attention Healthcare professionals! If you’re considering relocating your medical office in NYC, you might be overwhelmed. That’s why Eagle Transfer the leader in commercial moving in NYC is here to tell you everything you need to know for a smooth move. From maintaining patient confidentiality to handling delicate medical equipment and finding the right office storage solutions, we’ve seen and done it all.
Confidentiality Comes First
Patient privacy is non-negotiable in the medical world. When moving your office, it’s crucial to have a game plan in place to ensure sensitive patient records stay secure.
Backup Your Data: Before the move, back up all electronic patient records and confidential information. This ensures that even if something goes awry during the move, your data remains safe and sound.
Secure Document Handling: Whether in digital or physical form, patient records should be handled with utmost care. Use sealed containers and labels to keep track of confidential files during the move.
Notify Patients: Let your patients know about the move well in advance. Send out notifications via email, social media, and in-person to ensure a smooth transition of care.
Tackling Tricky Medical Equipment
Moving delicate medical equipment is one of our specialties. Not only do we wrap devices and technology in special static-free blankets, we can custom-build crates to transport sensitive equipment like retinal scanners, centrifuges, Xray machines, ultrasound equipment and more.
Inventory Check: Create a detailed inventory of all your medical equipment. This not only helps you keep track during the move but also ensures everything arrives safely at your new location.
Specialized Handling: Some equipment might require special handling, such as delicate calibration or disassembly. We operate and use lab pedestals, table lifts, machine boards and special dollies.
Transportation and Logistics: An experienced commercial mover will carefully plan the logistics, considering the size of the equipment, any weight restrictions, and the best route to minimize transportation stress.
Smart Storage Solutions
You may find that you need storage space. Working with a commercial mover that also offers storage makes your relocation that much easier. One vendor, one person of contact.
Customized Storage: Medical offices have unique storage needs. Whether it’s storing extra supplies, documents, or equipment, invest in storage solutions tailored to your requirements.
Maximize Space: NYC real estate isn’t exactly spacious, so make the most of what you’ve got. Consider vertical storage options like shelves and cabinets to optimize space utilization.
Accessibility Matters: Organize your storage so that commonly used items are easily accessible. This minimizes disruption during patient visits and keeps your workflow smooth.
