You are a mid-level manager in a health care organization and you
have been asked to prepare a report, with appropriate exhibits, for the
senior financial officer.
Discuss the roles played by financial ratios in general and analyze the commonly used financial ratios by categories.
Additionally, select a local hospital and compare its financial
ratios for the most recent three years against the national norms for
this type of institution. Include analytical comments and how the
organization compares to the national norms as well as any suggestions
as to how results could be improved.
