Unformatted sample text from the term paper:
Healthcare is the teaching hospital arm of the University of California. As a teaching and research hospital, it is one of the countrys leading hospitals. The purpose here
is to judge from the annual report whether the hospital is a good place to work. Performance Assessment Table 1. Selected Financial Ratios ($ in thousands) Item Derivation

The profitability ratios are operating profit margin, net profit margin, return on assets and return on equity. Several of these ratios are dependent on tax liability and
shareholder equity, of which UCLA Healthcare has neither. It is possible to calculate one of these ratios. ROA was 1.09 in 2001, placing UCLA Healthcare in a position
quite enviable among university-attached medical centers. ROA declined in 2002, but it is still quite positive in this environment in which "Teaching hospitals often fail even to break even"
(Christensen, Bohmer and Kenagy, 2000). UCLA certainly does not fall into the category that Christensen, Bohmer and Kenagy (2000) describe. Its annual
report reveals its financial soundness, and it is gratifying to see that UCLA Healthcare has chosen to be highly conservative in the manner in which it reports financial results.
