Abstract:Currently, the abolition of the building and construction regime (in Dutch: Bouwregime) has ensured that hospitals bear the responsibilities and risks for real estate investments themselves. In the past, hospitals received a fee for the standardised building area on the basis of a license from the Dutch Board for Hospital Facilities (in Dutch: College Bouw Zorginstellingen, CBZ), independent of the occupation of the hospital. Nowadays, hospitals need to recover the costs of capital from the production of the hospital. Formally, the financing of real estate investments was the end of the process and was undertaken mainly by banks with debt capital. However, at the present this is situation has changed. Also, the consequences of the credit crisis have not made things easier for hospitals. The result is that the financing of real estate investments by hospitals has come under pressure. In this research, I analyse the credit worthiness of general hospitals by means of financial ratios.
