How to Cost-Justify a New Piece of Equipment
Your capital equipment budget keeps shrinking, but your major equipment keeps getting older.
Today's rapid advances in medical technology create a continuous need to acquire and replace capital equipment. Here's how to make a convincing argument that your facility can't afford to pass up the purchase.

Beyond all else, capital purchases represent an act of faith, a belief that the future will be as promising as the present, together with a commitment to making the future happen.
