FINANCIAL STATEMENT PROJECT PART 1
Financial Accounting Case Requirements
For this project, you will be analyzing the financial statements of two county hospital districts: Dallas County Hospital District: Parkland Health & Hospital System and Bexar County Hospital District: University Health System. The audited financial statements of each are provided. You will draw conclusions about the overall health of each hospital district. Your project will be submitted in three individual submissions that will detail your analysis over the course of the term.
General Writing Instructions
Your source documents for the information you will be using for this project will primarily be the hospitals’ annual financial statements. To follow are a list of questions and other requirements. You are to use the financial statements provided for each hospital district to answer the questions. As you answer the questions, you only need to take into consideration the Health System for each hospital district, not the various component units.
As you answer the following questions, remember that the financial statements present summarized information. You can often find more detailed information in the footnotes to the financial statements. Be sure to utilize both sources of information in answering the questions. Most annual financial statements/reports will also include a Management Discussion & Analysis (MD&A) section. This section can provide useful background information in understanding management’s perspective as to why the financial results turned out as they did. You should primarily focus on the audited financial statements and footnotes when answering the questions and then supplement this with information from the MD&A section as needed.
WRITE YOUR DETAILED ANSWERS BELOW EACH QUESTION HIGHLIGHTED IN RED.
