Balance sheets. Income statements. Statements of cash flows. Disclosures.

Financial statements can seem overwhelming. And, after all, isn’t that why you hired an accountant?

Going beyond the basics of financial statements, this session will get to the heart of the matter – why a fundamental understanding of financial statements will help you ensure your hospital’s well-being.

  • Frequency with which financials should be reviewed
  • Using financial statement ratios to assess liquidity, leverage, EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization) and more
