Is the emergency center a wise use of the hospital''s , Financial Accounting

Consider a not-for-profit hospital faced with a familiar choice: to open or not to open an emergency center in a new suburban hospital shopping mall.  The mall's developers claim that referrals alone will make the center a financial winner of the hospital.  Cautious analysis in the comptroller's office argue that the startup costs of the center, and its annual cash outflows (including insurance), will be a major drain on the hospital's overall cash flow.  Initial cash outflows for the center are projected as follows: $300,000 for equipment, furniture, and fixtures; and $75,000 for new working capital (inventory, accounts receivable, cash on hand).  Analysts in the planning department estimate that the center will generate 8 visits per day, 7 days per week, 52 weeks per year, with average cash inflow per visit of $50.  The planning analysts also estimate $125,000 per year in net cash flows from increased admissions to the hospital.  Annual operating expenses of the center will be $200,000.  The hospital's weighted average cost of capital is 5 percent.  As a not-for-profit provider, the hospital has zero income tax rate.  The center has a expected life of 10 years and the expected salvage value of the clinic after 10 years will be $50,000.  Is the emergency center a wise use of the hospital's limited funds? You may use the following framework to set up the problem (10 points).
