Franklin County Hospital, a nonprofit hospital, bought and installed a new computer system last year for $150,000. The system is designed to relay information between labs and medical units. Charlene Walker, the hospital’s new computer specialist, had a meeting with Lou Campbell, vice president of finance. She began: “Lou, today I read in a journal that a new computer system has just been introduced. It costs $100,000, but I believe that by replacing our old system, we could reduce operating and maintenance costs that are now being incurred.” The following are Walker’s estimates:
Purchase and installment price
Useful life when purchased
Computer operating costs per year
Computer operating and maintenance
costs per year
Depreciation expenses per year
Cost of capital
a. Based on an analysis, what advice do you recommend that Walker give Campbell?
b. At what price for the new computer system would Campbell be indifferent?
c. Is this a typical make-or-buy decision? Why?
