The healthcare sector lost 17,500 jobs in September amid an ongoing labor shortage. Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, healthcare employment has dropped by 524,000, with nursing and residential care facilities accounting for about four-fifths of the loss.
The organization is critical in today’s healthcare environments with increased demand for healthcare workers and ongoing staffing shortages across the country. There is simply no time to struggle with accessing medications, medical tools, beds, or any devices required to take care of patients.

1. Modular Bin Shelving
We offer a modular bin sterile storage system that offers an unmatched degree of flexibility for your storage needs. The system maximizes capacity in your pharmacy or stocking room. Modular bin shelving can be accompanied by a high-density system to compress two rows of storage into one deeper space. When your space is at a premium this is the sterile storage system that will help most with organization and space savings.

Cold Storage Case Study
A Los Angeles-area diagnostic laboratory, originally built in 2016, conducts medical testing for hundreds of thousands of southern California residents. In response to an urgent need to process more COVID-19 tests, a new lab was constructed in 2020 by rapidly building out 30,000 square feet of shelled space inside the existing 150,000-square-foot facility. To support all the supplies and materials required to maintain a six-fold increase in capacity, the lab needed three compact storage systems one for materials management and two for storing test kits in refrigerated rooms.
