“SWOT is an acronym for the internal Strengths and Weaknesses of a firm and the environmental Opportunities and Threats facing that firm. SWOT analysis is a widely used technique through which managers create a quick overview of a company’s strategic situation. The technique is based on the assumption that an effective strategy derives from a sound “fit” between a firm’s internal resources (strengths and weaknesses) and its external situation (opportunities and threats). A good fit maximizes a firm’s strengths and opportunities and minimizes its weaknesses and threats. Accurately applied, this simple assumption has powerful implications for the design of a successful strategy.”

Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) 

Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) is a health care services company which owns and operates general and acute care hospitals, psychiatric hospitals and rehabilitation hospitals. The company’s leading position in the inpatient and outpatient markets in the US gives it a competitive edge, thus providing opportunities to further strengthen its position. However, increasing proportion of uninsured patient accounts and deterioration in the collectability of these accounts will adversely affect the results of operations of the company.
