Mechanisms for Evaluating Financial Health of Health Care Organizations
The board of directors of Pearland Medical Center is working on a strategic financial plan for its Urology Surgery Hospital facility. One of the strategic goals is to build a new $1 million prostate cancer research wing in five years. The board is concerned that current economic conditions might reduce revenues over the next five years and they are uncertain about the fate of the planned construction project. You are a part of the team tasked with conducting a capital budgeting analysis.
Urology Surgery Hospital reported $1.5 million in revenue in 2012 and $1.3 million in 2013. The hospital’s equity was $2 million in 2013; the equity was $2.41 million in 2012. The hospital received delayed third-party payments in 2013 of $500,000.
The hospital received $250,000 in grants in 2013.
The hospital’s current liabilities included operating costs of $1 million in 2012 and $1.2 million in 2013. In addition, the hospital retired $150,000 of debt in 2012 and 2013 (though it still held $750,000 in debt in 2013, compared to long-term debt of $900,000 in 2012). The hospital funded the employee pension plan with matching funds of $150,000 in both 2012 and 2013. Malpractice costs were $150,000 in 2012 and 2013. Depreciation expenses were $100,000 in 2012 and $105,000 in 2013. The hospital is a nonprofit facility so it incurs no tax liabilities.
