Hospitals have to take a lot into consideration when making their budget, including, but not limited to:
- Employee salaries
- Department expenses
- Cost of equipment and other technology
- Operating margins
With all of these factors, hospitals can be pretty restricted by their available funds and need to be as financially conscious as possible without sacrificing quality. Modular cleanrooms are a great way to get the cleanroom your hospital needs.
Easier Installation & Move
Like all modular buildings, the biggest advantage to having a modular cleanroom is the flexibility that it has during and after construction. It can be installed anywhere in a hospital and can be moved should the layout of the hospital change or it is needed elsewhere. That way, your hospital doesn’t have to hire builders to tear down and reconstruct your cleanroom from scratch.
Easier cleanroom construction means less money is spent paying builders. In addition, less disruption during construction will ensure your hospital runs as efficiently as possible.
A hospital needs to stay clean for health and safety reasons, so choosing a modular cleanroom over a traditionally built one will save your hospital a lot of messy construction hassles. Modular buildings are cleaner and quicker to install, with all the parts shipped in at once from the same place. Your hospital’s modular cleanroom can be constructed in a matter of days. No need for extra builders or contractors. Modular Construction is not permanent construction and can thereby qualify as capital equipment. This means under the new tax bill signed at the end of 2015 included:
Not Sacrificing High Quality Options
Modular cleanrooms perform just as efficiently as a conventionally built cleanroom. Design features like laminar air flow can be easily accomplished with a modular wall system. Single pass systems are easily created and ceiling systems can be included to support HEPA filters and cleanroom ceiling system to create a clean, safe environment to whatever ISO certification is required. These options are designed to bring affordable quality to your hospital without sacrificing high quality options. Porta-King will work with you to find the best fit for your hospital when designing your modular cleanroom.
A Permanent Expensing Limit
By buying a modular cleanroom your hospital will be able to expense up to $500,000 of investments in heavy machinery or office equipment instead of having to depreciate the cost over a number of years. In recent years, the $500,000 limit has been extended on a year-by-year basis, but sometimes — such as last year — it wasn’t extended until December, and then only on a retroactive basis. On January 1, 2016, the limit reverted to its old level of $25,000. The bonus depreciation is extended through 2019, and this incentive to buy new business equipment is available to businesses of all sizes.
