Abstract

A decided advantage of investor-owned companies is their ability to preserve, accumulate and attract capital. This has become increasingly important as the capital requirements of hospitals for new construction, renovation or advances of technology have grown in the past decade.

While matching the financial incentives of the for-profits may not be possible, the historical, social and service incentives and commitments of voluntarism can weigh heavily in favor of nonprofit national chains.
