This is the most practical financial management text for those who need basic financial management knowledge and a better understanding of healthcare finance in particular. Using actual examples from hospitals, long-term care facilities, and home health agencies, this user-friendly text includes practical information for the nonfinancial manager charged with budgeting.

 

All new chapters in the Second Edition:

 

  • Communicating Financial Information to Others
  • Comparative Data, Forecasts and Benchmarking
  • Business Loans and Financing Costs
  • Owning versus Leasing Equipment
  • Putting It All Together: Creating a Business Plan
  • Assets, Liabilities and Net Worth

Errata: A typographical error appears on page 25. The equation in the right-hand column should read: Assets = Liabilities + Net Worth. (Also note that the correct equation appears on page 85.)
