Compute the following ratios from Arcadia Hospitalís 2005 financial statements:

o Current ratio

o Total asset

Compare these ratios with the 1999 median for all U.S. acute care hospitals listed in Table 4-2.

Answer the following and explain your answer: What was the financial status of Arcadia in 2005?

Compute the following ratios from Arcadia Hospitalís 2005 financial statements:



o Asset/equity

o Long-term debt/equity
