What is Scrubs budget like? Or what should be a Scrubs budget?

Medical Uniforms or what many call “scrubs” have come a long way over the past 30 years. This has been the result of a few factors, each with an impact to this change from the traditional, boxy, loose fitting cotton attire, mostly in a pale blue or grey colour, to the vast variety of professional medical apparel that we now see across all medical professional settings.

The one size fits all, loose fitting, bland scrub outfit is a thing of the past as fabric technologies have evolved and companies have listened to is customers to provide medical professionals with higher-quality workwear that have properties to assist them throughout the day and where fit, form and function intersect to provide the wearer with an almost custom designed work uniform.

Today, with an evolved workforce, there are a variety of ways whereby medical professionals obtain their work-wear or scrubs. Some larger employers of medical professionals will provide branded medical apparel and scrubs for their staff, while some offices and clinics provide staff with a yearly budget to purchase whatever they want, while some of the smaller offices and clinics have staff obtain their own scrubs for work.


The vast array of scrubs on the market today to satisfy individual niche medical professional needs are somewhat infinite, and can be a challenge for any clinic or office looking to purchase scrubs for a larger group to satisfy their staff needs. There are a few key things to consider when opting to purchase scrubs for a group or staff. Clearly, purchasing from a reputable brand or company that offers a variety of sizes, styles, fabrics and colours will help narrow down the search.


As always, budget and cost, come into play however, consulting with a professional local retailer like BodyMoves Scrubs Boutique in Ontario can help guide any procurement agent fit their entire group. BodyMoves Scrubs Boutique works with a select few global medical apparel partners that enable them to provide bulk discounting for customers across Canada, with the ability for professional customization and embroidery to outfit a staff of 20 to 500+.


For those that are looking to develop a professional team atmosphere with very high-quality, fashionable attire available in timeless styles, sizes from XXS to 5XL in men’s and women’s collections, and carry core colours year-round, BodyMoves Scrubs Boutique has partnered with Barco Uniform to provide the Canadian medical profession market with well recognized branded collections including Barco ONE, Barco Grey’s Anatomy and the Barco Skechers collections, each well suited for any medical professional clinical staff setting.


Not all apparel is created equal, and from experience, those choosing to procure the cheapest scrubs for their staff quickly learn that the frequency of replacement costs coupled with the overall staff dissatisfaction with the look, fit and feel from sub-standard cheap scrubs has some definite hard costs associated with it as well as soft costs of having staff look like they are wearing potato sacks with pockets, not good for the moral!


From our countless customer reviews and experience, the following is a brief outline on what would be recommended for any group medical staff depending on the medical professional needs and environment while trying to maintaining a budget.

Barco One, with its classic timeless designs is high quality collection that is very well suited for any medical professional, however we find that anyone working in a veterinarian clinic and or animal hospital love this brand due to its anti-shed and anti-static fabric properties.

Barco’s Grey’s Anatomy Spandex Stretch is very well suited to the medical professional that has a physically demanding role and is always moving. As the name implies, the fabric stretches and breaths to keep the wearer comfortable and fresh across their entire shift.

Grey’s Anatomy Evolve collection is an excellent choice for dental clinics, and medical offices as there are a variety of styles and colours to choose from, have fabric properties that are breathable, moisture wicking, and like all other Barco products, anti-wrinkle and easy care.

For those on a tighter budget that is looking to get the same quality and style of Barco products but at a lower price-point, Barco Skechers is the go-to collection as it has all of the characteristics inherited by Barco but at a lesser cost. This collection comes in a variety of styles and colours to satisfy any group medical professional staff.

With our deep partnership, BodyMoves Scrubs Boutique and Barco Uniform are able to offer large group order discounts for high quality medical apparel that more times than not, have benefits that outweigh price alone, thus offering total value to the group purchaser.
