YES, they can LEGALLY. This is more often used by collectors as a scare tactic than actually done.

Can a furniture rental business excute a warrant for your arrest for non-payment?

An arrest warrant cannot be executed except through due process. This means a judge has to sign a warrant if there is probable cause to believe you committed a criminal offense. Non-payment to a furniture rental business is actually a civil matter, not a criminal matter. They can go before a judge and get an order to garnish. They can also repossess the property. They can ruin your credit rating. They cannot issue a warrant for anything. That's done through proper legal channels.

Generally no you won't go to jail if you go to the hospital. Health care providers don't care about the legal status of their patients. If you go to the hospital with a gunshot or stab wound or because of some other illegal activity they willcall the police. The police will then check you for warrants. If you just go to the hospital because you are sick they don't care if you have a warrant.

That depends on what sort of company you had in mind. An aviation company will have several, as most helicopter pilots are WOs.

Can the loan company issue a criminal warrant for arrest for non-payment on a auto loan?

Warrants are issued by a judge, and not a loan company. The loan company can repossess an automobile or can sue in court to recover the vehicle or what is owed on it (plus costs). The police do not come and arrest people for not paying off a loan. Lastly, disagreements over payment issues regarding a car loan are civil matters, not criminal ones. Also please be aware that is illegal for an institution collecting debt to threaten arrest, or imprisonment. You can report this to the FTC (if they are under their regulatory authority) and state Attorney General.
