Alternative method of funding hospital capital expenditures.J Health Care Finance. 1999 Spring; 25(3):60-4.JH
This article presents a model that demonstrates how a hospital can form a strategic partnership with a vendor to use the vendor's previous knowledge, experience, and strategic alliances to fund capital expenditures and implement cost savings programs for the hospital, with no capital outlay or risk to the hospital. The vendor assumes full financial risk for the success of the program. In exchange for the vendor's full risk, the hospital shares in the savings with the vendor.
