As a small (3-4 student) group you are required to develop a financial analysis of a healthcare organization.
The intent of this assignment is to evaluate the financial and operational health of the organization. You may
pursue, analyze, and synthesize any information source you choose (e.g., website content, current resident
personal interviews, organizational documentation, etc.).
During the development process you will also be asked to review the work of at least one other group, provide
feedback, and help support their development effort. This will also help you (1) learn about one other’s
organization and (2) benchmark your efforts against the work of your peers.
Your content should be clear, logical, and report on (at a minimum) the business’ location(s) and competitive
market(s). Use of a PESTLE and SWOT analysis is encouraged. From a financial perspective, your final
presentations should contain analysis and discussion on 2- 3 ratios from each of the primary financial ratio
categories discussed in Week 4 (e.g., liquidity, profitability, operating efficiency, and capital structure). A five
year trend analysis – including the most recent year of available information/data – is expected for each ratio
selected. Interpret the ratios, the financial and market trends and provide your perspectives on the strengths
and weaknesses of the organization.
