University of Phoenix SWOT Analysis Health Care Organization Discussion

Exam Content

  1. To evaluate a health care organization from a market-based perspective, you need information. Seeing how your organization is situated in the market takes analyzing it from the inside out, considering both positive and negative factors. In this assignment, you will demonstrate your skill in strategic planning as you evaluate a health care organization from a market-based perspective and use that evaluation to create a SWOT analysis.

    Assignment Preparation

    Review the Stevens District Hospital Strategic-Planning Scenario.
    Refer to the SWOT resources from the University Library that provide SWOT reports for select companies that may help you with your analyses. Not all companies will have a report.
