Sharing a medical space is a decision that many smaller medical practices are making. A shared medical space, also known as medical office sharing, is a growing trend. It comes with many benefits that many traditional medical spaces may not offer.
If you are looking for a medical space for your practice, consider the advantages that practices with a shared medical space have been reaping.
#1 Lower Operating Costs
Smaller medical practices that share a medical space with others have the advantage of lower operating costs. The rent, utility bills, cleaning and maintenance, and other expenses can be split between practices sharing the space. Renting your own space means your practice alone would be subject to many unforeseen and hidden costs. Among the most expensive hidden costs of running a practice are acquiring medical equipment and hiring staff. A reputable shared medical space will have the amenities you need and an already vetted medical staff that helps make things run smoothly.
#2 Scheduling Flexibility
If you are a smaller practice just starting out, you may not have that many patients that allow you to be open every day of the week. Shared medical space allows more flexibility with scheduling and leasing options, so you do not lose money and can adjust your needs as you grow. If you were to lease your own space, you would lose out on the flexibility that a shared medical space offers.
#3 Save Time and Energy
A shared medical space will save you time. Finding a space, setting up a lease, hiring staff, purchasing equipment, setting up vendors, and completing all administrative and management duties take a lot of time and energy. The owner of the shared medical space helps you save time, energy, and focus on the delivery of care to patients by absorbing the responsibility of managing the facility.
#4 Great Way to Network
A medical space you share with other professionals makes networking and collaboration much easier. There are the benefits of the ease of making referrals and building your professional profile, attracting more patients who trust you with their care.
#5 Easily Grow Your Practice
Shared medical space allows you to grow your practice without expensive costs. Hiring professionals and staff costs an excessive amount of money if you hire and manage them on your own. By sharing a medical space, new hires become part of the growing community of which you are part of.
#6 Boost Your Medical Practice
If the shared medical space has diagnostic services available on-site and if surgery is performed in the same facility, it means greater convenience for you and your patients. If the shared space is a state-of-the-art facility, it boosts the perception of your medical practice, with its size, level of maintenance, and amenities, which may be cost-prohibitive to do alone.
