Capital Expenditure Lecture Example 2 – HHC Hospital HHC wants to improve the productivity of its Imaging Department. It is considering replacing its old X- ray machine (Old-E) with a new machine (New-E). New-E is faster and easier to operate, and has the ability to X-ray larger areas of the body. These improvements will decrease labour costs and reduce the average number of X-rays taken per patient. New-E X-rays are also of higher quality and will lead to improved diagnoses, better patient treatment, and increased safety of technicians and patients. Additional information and assumptions: 1. Old-E is currently valued at $40,000, and its current disposal value is $6,500. If it were kept, Old-E could operate for another 5 years, after which it would have a $0 disposal value. 2. New-E is expected to have a 5 year useful life and a $0 disposal value (for both tax and accounting purposes). It will cost $350,000 to purchase, and $40,000 to install. The installation costs are considered part of the cost of New-E.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
