  1. Cost reductions or reputation enhancement as motives for mergers : the logic of multihospital systems.

    Article - En anglais

    This paper examines two motives for the formation of local multihospital systems : cost reduction and reputation enhancement.

    Systems may reduce costs by eliminating redundancies and reducing administrative costs.

    Integration may also lower costs for consumers seeking consisting high quality.

    We hypothesize that if systems achieve either cost or reputation benefits, then member hospitals will « look » different from random collections of hospitals.
