Infrastructure audits are done for various reasons and one of the reasons would be to access the strength of the building and assets for valuation purpose when buying / selling the existing hospital.

Structural audit is done to understand the strength of the building and hence assess the life of the building for smooth operations. This is to be done as a precautionary exercise so that the buyer will not end up in renovating the hospital building in the midst of the patient care.

Macula Healthcare offer services to prospective buyers to assess the value of the building and equipments – medical, non-medical and furniture. Our associates – civil engineering and bio-medical equipment engineers work in coordination and conduct the infrastructure audit.

Buying an existing facility

Many businessmen lend land for long-term lease with an existing operational or non-operational facility. One should take a conscious decision in such case to assess the strength of the building.

It may so happen, that the land lease period may be for 30 years but the strength of the building can be extended for 2-3 years. Once the establishment is operational, it is a great challenge to disrupt and reinforce the structure. It may so happen that one needs to demolish and construct new facility.

Equipment audit is also part of the assessment, if the facility is a hospital and want to sell all the equipments

 FAQs

What is the life cycle of medical equipments?

Medical equipment will have a life cycle and is different for each equipment. While auditing, we assess the equipment of its use and then compare it to the company manual on its life. If needed, we even discuss with the vendor on its optimal use, its life and then derive a value after depreciation.

What is the depreciation factor?

For high value and heavy duty equipment, the depreciation ranges between 10% to 25%. While making the purchase of the equipment, the vendor will either tell the life cycle or the number of procedures that can be done with the equipment. Based on this, the depreciation factor can be calculated.

Buying an existing hospital. Is this part of the assignment?

Yes, it is. The valuation is based on the projected business of an existing facility and also the present value of all the infrastructure. The tax returns and annual reports of the hospital will give us the existing business and then project on the future, whereas the infrastructure assessment help us derive the value of the facility.
