Capital Project

“A capital expenditure is a commitment of resources that is expected to provide benefits during a reasonably long period, at least two or more years” (Cleverly & Cameron, 2007, p. 397). Sometimes it can be difficult to determine the difference between a capital expenditure and a routine expense. A capital expenditure improves the value of the asset, whereas a routine expense is used for maintenance of that asset. For example, installation of a new bathroom in a rental is a capital expenditure, because it increases the value of the rental. Repairing the stove, however, is a routine expense designed to keep the rental in operating condition. The main goal of a capital purchase is that the lifetime of that product will extend beyond the year of purchase. After purchased the product is called a capital asset. Capital assets are all tangible property which cannot easily be converted into cash and which is usually held for a long period, including real estate, equipment, etc. (Finkler, Kovner, Jones, 2007). Capital assets and money used to purchase such items are treated differently than that of the operating budget. The operating budget is money being used and tangible at the time. Capital assets may cost money now, yet you may not profit from them until another period of time. The key to a good capital purchase knows the life of the product. This can help you choose whether a new product should be purchased or a refurbished product or if the product should be leased. Capital assets are usually equipment used to replace old equipment or new equipment in which studies have shown could improve the business. In healthcare the business is quality patient care. So in healthcare a capital purchase would be something in which improves quality patient care.…...

At&T Capital Structure Project

...9 million mobile customers. Capital Structure AT&T's capital structure is among the most conservative in the telecom industry, and management is committed to maintaining that position. The firm's net debt load currently totals 76.2 billion as of September 2013. Over a span of three years their net debt in total was 63.7 billion. Their debt/EBITDA was 2.41 at the end of September. Their equity however is higher than their debt. At the end of September 2013 their equity totaled 85.7 billion and 101.0 billion over a three year span. Their debt/equity ratio is 0.89 which is still good compared to the industry average of 0.70. They believe keeping leverage at that level is a good move given management's commitment to the dividend and the size of the firm's other obligations. AT&T’s overall retirement liabilities exceed $90 billion including OPEB (other post-employment benefits) and pension as of 2012. AT&T's debt load is structured fairly simply. Though the firm has debt outstanding from several subsidiaries, all recent issuance has been made at the parent level. The debt maturity schedule is well spaced. I don't foresee the firm to have any trouble meeting these obligations. AT&T’s capital structure is in very good shape and very appropriate because they are well over the industry average. For AT&T to continue to excel the must maintain their capital structure and not let it drop below average. This is because improved capital structure is foundation for......

Capital Purchase

...Capital Purchase Justification HCA-240 Paula Arceneaux 10/13/2013 Angela Seip I know the hospital has been planning on making an investment on equipment to boost services. I would recommend investment on the General Electric Prodigy Bone Density equipment. Making decisions especially on major equipment must factor in various considerations, such as the cost of the equipment and projected returns that the equipment is likely to bring in to the hospital. The Bone Density scan has been selected as the ideal investment for this hospital. Though the equipment requires substantial spending, the equipment has higher possibility for reimbursement. Bone Densitometers are used in medicine to evaluate calcium bone density, which is changed in several diseases such as osteopenia and osteoporosis. These machines have been technologically advanced and are in current use for clinical diagnosis. A woman is at a higher risk of an osteoporotic fracture than getting breast cancer, having stroke and or heart attack combined, approximately 40% of women will experience at least one fracture during their lifetime. The World Health Organization recommends that women 65 and older be regularly measured for osteoporosis to reduce the risk of fracture and spinal abnormalities often related to the disease. The Lunar Prodigy by General Electric uses a direct-digital detector and a narrow-angle fan-beam to enhance efficiency and accomplish excellent precision in spine, femur and total body......

...Capital Project – Practice Management System Amy Guerber HCS/571 August 30, 2015 Professor Linda Roan Practice Management System In medical practices, the investment in a practice management system is necessary to effectively manage the operations of all departments. A typical practice management system captures billing data, patient demographic information, strategic reports, and appointment scheduling. The HITECH Act of 2009 requires that patient demographics, as well as disease data, are collected and reported to federal and state health agencies in electronic format (CDC, 2012). As a result, our practice has made the decision to invest in the purchase and implementation of the Greenway Health practice management system. The purpose of this paper is to provide background on the system, identify the management and organizational goals for selecting this system, the benefits to the organization, and the justification for this capital investment. Greenway Health Practice Management As a web-based application, the Greenway Practice Management system has been selected as the preferred solution because of its ability to verify benefits eligibility for patients, manage patient scheduling and patient billing. The application will streamline the billing process for the multiple office locations in our practice, allowing for centralized management.

Cost of Capital Project (Wacc)

...Colby Wagoner Cost of Capital Project(WACC) FIN 4422 T: 7:10-10 1. Marginal Cost of Debt: Kd= rf + Spread Kd= .0295(or 2.95%) + .0577(or 5.77%)= .0875(or 8.75%) 2. Marginal Cost of Equity: Ke= Kd+Risk Premium Risk Premium for choosing to invest in a more risky asset, the premium will be set at 10% due to the the falling stock price and ROE has dropped to -200% making the risky stock unappealing so setting the premium as high as I did should influence investors. Ke= .0875+.10= .1875(or 18.75%) 3. Marginal Cost of Preferred Stock: Preferred Stock Return would be a little less, Costing us 17.75% because the preferred stock(even though this company does not have any) would be less risky because of the fact that shareholders of preferred stock would get payed before those holders of common stock. 4. Marginal Cost of Leasing: KL= Kd(1-T)+ Premium KL=.0875(1-.35)+.02= .0769(or 7.69%) Referring to my source, under leases, it says it has various % so .02 premium would seem appropriate due to an increased risk of default. “The Company enters into non-cancelable operating leases for retail stores, distribution facilities, equipment, and office space. Most leases have fixed rentals, with many of the real estate leases requiring normal and customary additional payments for real estate taxes and occupancy-related costs.

Capital Purchase Justification

...Capital Purchase Justification Jessica Keating Grand Canyon University: HCA- 530 January 21, 2016 According to the National Cancer Institute, “12.4 percent of women born in the United States today will develop breast cancer at some time during their lives” (NIH,2012). Early detection and treatment of breast cancer is possible with the use of digital imaging through a mammogram and a clinical breast exam. The Center for Disease Control reported, “ In 2010, an estimated 75.4% women aged ≥40 years and 79.7% of women aged 50–74 years reported having a mammogram within the past 2 years” (Miller, 2012). My intent in writing this report is for our organization to capture this very crucial part of the market. My goal is to explain to you how our facility could benefit from the acquisition of a GE SenoClaire 3D Tomosynthesis system. Our facility like others in Arizona are working towards decreasing rising healthcare costs through the promotion of preventative health care and early interventions for high risk populations. I feel like our health care network could be a leader in breast health and breast cancer awareness with the right tools. Currently, “ The cost of screening mammograms is covered without copayments or deductibles. Medicare pays for annual screening mammograms for all female Medicare beneficiaries who are age 40 or older. Medicare will also pay for one baseline mammogram for female beneficiaries between the ages of 35 and 39. There is no......

Section One Capital Project

...Section 1 Capitol Project Deborah Kirk University of Phoenix HCS 517 Debra Vaughn April 25, 2016 Many healthcare organizations set goals and objections and write mission statements that reflect the way they want the public to see how healthcare is provided. This is done to guide how their healthcare providers practice daily. In order to meet these goals and objects it is necessary to have in place processes and procedures to ensure the results will be what is expected which is a positive patient experience and outcome. In order for our organization to reach this goal there is a coaching and execution package that will provide step-by-step processes and procedures to ensure that everyone is doing the same thing at the same time with every patient every day. This package is called the Studer Principles® offered by the Studer Group Corporation®.

...Capital Purchase Justification MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging which is a technology that uses magnetic signals to show the different tissues inside the body allowing a digital image of inside the human body to be created. MRI's are mainly used to study nerves, muscles, ligaments, bones, and numerous other tissues in the body, primarily soft tissues. There are so many MRI procedures performed each year making this one of the more common imaging technologies used to view inside the body. It will continue to enhance medical services and better meet community needs. It is an important new application in new patient care and the fastest growing imaging, spurred in part by rapid advances in technology. The skills can lead to faster and more accurate diagnoses. Also, the more specific treatment of medical conditions the better it can support and enhance the work of other departments in the hospital. Hospitals may find that having MRI abilities helps interest and keep doctors. Doctors would like to be working with advanced technologies and that they will be able to get faster and more imaging and diagnosis for their patients. When the technology is new it’s better to use than the old equipment because when there its old, spending to repair it is a lot of money and runs slow because it isn’t advanced. Many patients will want to come to your hospital due to the advanced technology that’s in the hospital. It will increase the revenue as patients get further medical......

Capital Project

...Capital Project Name: Institution: It is on record that companies and organizations in different industries invest massive resources in their specific lines of operation in order to survive in their respective industries, maintain market shares, and continue to provide quality products or services together with generating more income. Specifically, organizations in the health care sector often invest in capital projects that are aimed at attaining both managerial and organizational goals (Rechel, Wright & Edwards, 2009). In most cases, the capital projects undertaken by health care facilities take up huge percentages of their incomes or revenue because they involve purchase of expensive machinery, building projects, and advanced medical equipments. Some of the viable capital projects that health care facilities invest in include research laboratories or libraries, machinery such as CT scanners, Magnetic resonance imaging equipment and powerful X-ray machines among others. A case in point is a capital project in St. Luke’s health care center in which the management recently approved a capital investment of purchase and installation of patient records filing software is projected to change the manner in which this facility has been performing its daily operations. In this regard, this paper aims at evaluating St. Luke’s health care facility in relation to management objectives and organizational goals in addition to highlighting...
