Debt ratios in the hospital industry have steadily increased in recent years. This study will focus on possible causes as well as attempt to clarify the extent to which reimbursement of interest expense influence capital structure decisions. The primary objectives are: (1) collect, test and refine data from the Health Care Investment Analysts, Inc., data base; and (2) analyze results and prepare a paper for the Journal of Finance.
