It's possible, but hospitals also get more patients if they have a better reputation, especially if there are many competing hospitals. So I doubt that would be their motive, because they'd be undermining their own business by providing a poor quality service and driving away potential customers.

I think it's more that they're just cheap and stubborn and these properties of brass aren't well known among people who would choose door handles while designing a hospital. Old habits die hard in the medical field.

Also I think This Is Spinal Tap beat you to the "It goes to 11" thing by about 30 years haha
