All healthcare organizations face the challenge of financing and implementing the latest, ever-changing medical equipment while carefully managing budget dollars. The challenge is amplified for small and rural hospitals, which face higher demands from patients and an increased focus on improving the patient experience — but perhaps don’t have the cash flow to keep up with evolving medical technology.
The capital expenditures required for investment and growth pose a difficult challenge for healthcare CFOs. They are often in a position of having to balance patient needs and cash availability — and it doesn’t help when traditional lenders often shy away from providing financing for medical equipment in an environment that’s ripe with uncertainty.
Reasons for Medical Equipment Financing
Healthcare organizations have two primary reasons for obtaining equipment loans:
Buying or upgrading equipment to fulfill new jobs and contracts — and enhance patient care
Taking advantage of advancements in technology to help them stay ahead of the competition
