Abstract

Data envelopment analysis is used to estimate technical efficiency in for-profit independent and for-profit chain nursing homes. The empirical findings suggest, ceteris paribus, that significant multiplant economies exist. Thus, the growth of chain ownership may offer promise for an industry hampered by rapidly rising costs.
