Compute the eight ratios—as shown in Chapter 11—for Patton-Fuller Hospital based on its unaudited financial statements and critique its operating results and financial position. Ratio by ratio, do you agree or disagree with the CEO’s report to the Board? Why or why not?
· Read the Annual Report and the audited financial statements, and re-compute those same ratios using the audited financial statements.
Considerthe financial performance before the audit, and after the audit. What has changed and how significant is that change? What plans should the hospital Board make for next year and the next five years?
