Section B

Based on the review of the Phoenix Hospital 5-Year Strategic Plan Scenario, conduct a SWOT analysis to generate a list of perceived strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats for the hospital.

Strengths and weaknesses are traits internal to the hospital (e.g., strong physician loyalty to the hospital, aging building, and availability of financial resources).

Opportunities and threats are external to the hospital (e.g., a mall facility available for lease or a competitor hospital opening two physician practices in your market).

Complete the SWOT analysis for the Phoenix Hospital 5-Year Strategic Plan Scenario. Include the following in your SWOT analysis:

· A list of perceived strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats

· At least 3 items in the SWOT analysis must be related to technology, regulatory, and financials.

· An analysis of the information from the strategic decision-making scenario that supports the SWOT analysis items


Note: Think ahead in your assignments regarding how your items in the SWOT analysis will translate to objectives and strategies in Week 4. For example, a weakness like “Limited registered nurse staffing in several departments” might translate to an objective of “Increase RN staff by 15 nurses within first 6 months.” The strategy for this objective might be “Job fair at the state nursing convention will increase interest and awareness of opportunities at Phoenix Hospital.”
