Abstract

This paper tests for evidence of financing constraints in the U.S. hospital industry. The authors hypothesize that small hospitals and free-standing hospitals are more likely to face financing constraints than, respectively, large hospitals and members of hospital chains. They estimate the relationship between liquidity and investment within each cohort, controlling for a variety of factors that might affect the marginal profitability of hospital investment. The results provide strong evidence that small hospitals and free-standing hospitals face borrowing constraints due to agency costs. This supports earlier work that found evidence of financing constraints in other contexts. Copyright 1995 by Ohio State University Press.
