I would choose taking over Henry Ford Hospital because it is both non-profit and a corporation. I believe that this is most beneficial because it doesn’t deal with taxes and is able to acquire money from services performed, bonds, and donations from outsiders. For example, these bonds and donations are from those that want to help the community health facility, but also get a tax deduction meaning that people will be more apt to donate (Harris, 2014). As for the corporation part, it does not have the burden of complete liability. Also, Henry Ford System is a huge corporation that is widely used which lessens the unmanageable debt. By combining or having many facilities, unmanageable debt is not so bad as the facilities have more money and resources (Harris, 2014). I choose Henry Ford over the other two because less minorities and underserved population have the chances of being turned away. This organization seems to be the most beneficial for the community for this reason and because of the scale of this organization as well. If I had to choose a different option, then I would go with Harbor Oaks. Harbor Oaks is a small, psychological hospital that is ran by a bigger corporation called Acadia Healthcare Company (SEC, 2014). The reason I would choose this one over Anchor Bay Clinic is because it can raise its own money with shareholders that are involved with Acadia and all facilities under it. I believe that Anchor Bay Clinic has a harder time with funding and if liabilities do happen, then the clinic will take a bigger hit than these bigger operations even though it is a corporation as well.
