Excellent article .I worked for a group of orthopedic and pain doctors in a large building .The amount of staff involved in direct patient care was dwarfed by the amount of staff handling billing and paper work .

Kcowan Having spent several years in Health care Facilities management I can say that your premise that health care facilities do not need an ROI is incorrect. In the US a health care facility is considered to be doing "ok" if it makes 4 - 5 % on the gross income.

The ROI I was referring to is from the invested capital that is raised from benefactors. You are talking about them making a small operating profit. No argument with that.
