Assignment: Healing Hands Hospital

Healing Hands Hospital is a large medical center located in a similar area to another Catholic acute-care community hospital. Both facilities are very resourceful to the communities they serve; however, their business and fundamental practices are different. Healing Hands’ vice president of operation is creating a new strategy and would like to understand the fundamental practices of the Catholic acute-care community hospital.

You have been asked to research the differences between the services that your organization offers and those that the Catholic acute-care hospital offers. For the purposes of this assignment, select 2 hospitals on the Web that are in the same city or area. They should both be acute-care community hospitals of similar bed sizes, but 1 should be managed by a religious order. Review the Web information on these facilities.

Describe the similarities and differences of these organizations in terms of the following:

Mission
Goals
Objectives
Management structure
Staffing
Policies
Procedures

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
