A1a. Building Advantages Trinity Community Hospital must consider the advantages and disadvantages of building, buying and leasing adequate space for the new orthopedic service line. Building a new facility offers the following advantages for the hospital: Customization Trinity Community Hospital can have the new orthopedic building custom built which will give the physicians group the ability to custom design the new facility. Having a custom designed orthopedic facility designed by physicians will give the hospital the capability to focus on the patients and the hospitals five year strategic plans (a diseased –focused clinic and comprehensive medical and surgical center) allowing the organization to maximize productivity and space. Trinity Community Hospital has a long term goal of 2100 surgical cases, 6,500 physical therapy visits and a profit margin of $2,171,500 for its new orthopedic service line.
Through its efforts, the health of the community and quality of life are enhanced. (http://bertfish.com/about/mission-and-vision/) Bert Fish medical center has 260.73 million dollars in patient revenues and 16.69 million dollars in non-patient revenue (mainly as support from the county in tax dollars to support Indigent care). The hospital has net income of only 1.36 million after paying for expenses and accounting for depreciation. The net income leaves very little cash to support and expand the operations. In addition, newer technology requires that the hospital invest even more in providing the updated technology to its customers to be relevant in the competitive health care sector.

This year the split is proposed to be 50-50. The hospital’s CFO is also proposing that a scoring system be used to evaluate this year’s proposals. She has set up a scoring system that allows a maximum of five points. Thus the low is a score of one point and the high is a score of five points. In addition to the points earned by a funding proposal, the CFO will allow one “bonus point” for upgrading existing equipment and one “bonus point” for funding expansion of existing programs.
