Financial ratio analysis is a procedure for evaluating the financial position of a corporation or institution, such as a hospital, by linking through the calculation of a ratio, different parts of the corporation’s or institution’s financial statements. These ratios provide clues about the status of particular aspects of the financial condition of the organization.
