Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 23, 2013
The American Hospital Association (AHA) today announced its exclusive endorsement of Equipment Financing from First American Healthcare Finance. AHA Solutions, Inc., a subsidiary of the AHA, awards the AHA Endorsement to products and services that support member hospitals and health care organizations in achieving operational excellence. The First American solution was selected for endorsement following a proprietary due diligence process that identified it as a leader in providing comprehensive, health care-focused leasing and financing solutions that enable hospitals to efficiently acquire new equipment.
The First Equipment Financing Solution to be Endorsed by the AHA
Access to the latest and most advanced equipment can optimize patient care but it requires capital. First American’s track record of helping hospitals acquire information technology, medical equipment, services and software with customized leasing and financing solutions helped it earn the first exclusive endorsement for equipment financing from the AHA.
“As health care success metrics move from volume to value, hospitals must identify both the level and the sources of their future revenue to support technology procurement. Equipment financing offers an alternative way to acquire new equipment,” said Anthony J. Burke, president and CEO of AHA Solutions. “After an extensive due diligence process, we are endorsing the First American solution for its health care focus, nationwide scope, breadth of financing options and exceptional service.”
“First American Healthcare Finance is proud of this endorsement and of our partnership with the AHA,” said Rick Blowers, senior vice president of First American Healthcare Finance. “We look forward to working with more AHA member hospitals in the months and years to come."
