Based on the resource-based theory, this study analyzed cross-organization cooperation and resource value of hospital medical departments in the viewpoint of rare, irreplaceable, and inimitability of a resource base model developed by scholars Grant and Barney. We interviewed 10 respondents in three regional hospitals and analyzed the interview contents according to the model. The important results are twofold: (a) The rare and irreplaceable resources owned by hospitals relate to the competitive advantage of the hospital; (b) Hospital medical collaboration across organizational divisions or self-development and medical divisions in professional competence are positively correlated.
