This letter investigates whether the public perceives nonprofit organizations different from private and public organizations and whether introducing new performance management systems would provide positive credits to organizations. Using two randomized survey experiments on US hospitals (one with adult sample and the other with student sample), we replicate the study of Hvidman and Andersen (2016) in Denmark with an extension of adding a nonprofit organization cue. The results show no sectoral differences among the hospitals and no positive feedback for adopting a new performance management system.
