The More the Merrier- Hospital Network Mobile Massages

Hospital networks are able to cover a lot of ground in the services, programs, and benefits they provide to their clients and patients. By coordinating across several different locations, networks are able to reach more patients and provide a broader range of services.

So when it comes to benefits for hospital employees, shouldn’t there be the same level of coordination?

In this article, we’ll cover how hospital networks can benefit from using a central massage provider for all their in-office needs, including staff appreciation, health fairs, and hospital parties.

Massage Service for Hospitals: Using Your Network




Benefits of Massage Service for Hospitals

Benefit #1: Lower Cost

The most immediate benefit hospitals will see to bringing a massage company on board for their entire hospital network is a lower cost for massage services for all their hospitals, clinics, offices, and even individual departments.

When developing an established business partnership with a massage company, a health care network can enjoy the perks of a partner rate for everyone in their organization, not matter how big or small.

So even a department of 5 people can enjoy the volume discount instead of the standard cost of a massage event or program. By working out a network-wide arrangement with a massage provider, everyone in your health organization can enjoy that sweet lower rate.


Benefit #2: Convenience

The second main benefit is the convenience of using a massage company who others in their hospital network can vouch for. It beats having to reinvent the wheel every time a network hospital is looking for a massage service.

Networked hospitals and health clinics can more easily sign up for a massage day or event without having to search for a massage provider, arrange payment details, and figure out how the whole process works. Take care of it once, and it’s done for the whole network. Which brings me to the next point…

Benefit #3: Ease of Use

By already having a massage provider in your system, you can enjoy the benefits of already having a W9 set-up, completed vendor paperwork, pre-determined cost, and a confirmed method of payment.

By setting your massage company up as a network-wide vendor, you’re able to eliminate tons of paperwork that would have to be replicated before every massage event at each new network location. This makes the whole process easy peasy for everyone.

How to Get Started

If you’d like to get your hospital network set up with a massage company, start by finding a provider in your area to ask a few questions. Here’s some basic information your massage company should be able to provide:

  • Are the prepared to provide service to a hospital network?
  • Can they provide massage events as well as on-going massage programs?
  • Do they provide program data and analytics?
  • What is the scheduling process like?

Finally, when deciding on a massage provider for a hospital network, see if you’re able to get a free demo of the massage service.
