Assignment 3: Course Project Task 1—Understanding Prospective Client Organizations

For this assignment, you will refer to the financial information you collected for the FP and NFP in M1: Assignment 2. You will also refer to the information on the fictional facility, Sakasegawa Memorial Hospital (SMH), for which financial data is supplied.

You will use ratio analysis to conduct a review of each organization’s financial information. You will carry out an analysis of the key components of the balance sheet and income statement. Then, you will address the differences in the accounting statements of NFPs and FPs, including an examination of operational issues.

Here are some questions you can use to direct your review:

  • Which organization is bigger? Consider assets, liabilities, and equity.
  • Which organization has more debt? Consider debt and risk.
  • Which organization is making money? Consider patient care revenue, patient days, and hospital beds.
  • How much money comes from sources other than patient revenue? Consider contributions and research.
  • How does the structure differ between FP and NFP facilities? Consider organizational type and overall structure.

Write a 3- to 5-page paper in Microsoft Word format. All written assignments and responses should follow APA rules for attributing sources. Use the following file naming convention: LastnameFirstInitial_M1_A3.doc.
By Friday, March 8, 2013, submit your assignment to the M1: Assignment 3 Dropbox.
