First American – Providing funding solutions exclusively for healthcare organizations

How do you help healthcare organizations navigate the biggest challenges in healthcare?

Healthcare organizations have faced an overwhelming number of challenges in the past few years, and it is incredibly important to stay nimble and adapt quickly to change. First American’s funding solutions allow healthcare organizations to acquire leading-edge equipment and stay up to date with the latest technology, often paying less than cash. Vendors and banks also provide funding solutions, but they usually offer cookie-cutter programs and don’t focus solely on healthcare. Because First American works only with healthcare organizations, we understand your needs and can provide a faster, easier process. 

What advice would you offer to healthcare leaders when choosing among vendors?

Healthcare organizations have many unique attributes, so when choosing a vendor, leaders should look for vendors with expertise in the healthcare industry. First American works with over 900 healthcare organizations across the nation, and it often is the equipment-financing vendor of choice because of its healthcare industry expertise, award-winning culture, use of technology and the stability provided by its parent companies, City National Bank and RBC.

What is some advice you can give providers for a successful implementation of a new product or service?

Due diligence is an important step in choosing new products or services, but it’s time-consuming and can be difficult. Healthcare providers should choose a vendor or service provider that is Peer Reviewed or has already been vetted by an industry association to save time and gain confidence that they are using a trusted resource.
