Universal Health Services (NYSE:UHS) stock is up 39% in the past month. We wonder if and what role company finances play in this price change, as a company’s long-term fundamentals usually dictate market outcomes. Specifically, we decided to study the ROE of Universal Health Services in this article.

Return on equity or ROE is a key metric used to gauge how effectively a company’s management is using the company’s capital. In other words, it reveals the company’s success in turning shareholders’ investments into profits.

Check out our latest analysis for universal health services

How to calculate return on equity?

ROE can be calculated using the formula:

Return on equity = Net income (from continuing operations) ÷ Equity

So, based on the formula above, the ROE for universal health services is:

12% = $721 million ÷ $5.9 billion (based on trailing 12 months to September 2022).

“Yield” is the income the business has earned over the past year. This means that for every dollar of shareholders’ equity, the company generated $0.12 in profit.

What is the relationship between ROE and earnings growth?

We have already established that ROE serves as an effective profit-generating indicator for a company’s future earnings. Depending on how much of those earnings the company reinvests or “keeps”, and how efficiently it does so, we are then able to assess a company’s earnings growth potential. Assuming everything else remains unchanged, the higher the ROE and earnings retention, the higher a company’s growth rate relative to companies that don’t necessarily exhibit these characteristics.

A Side-by-Side Comparison of Universal Health Benefits Growth and ROE of 12%

For starters, Universal Health Services’ ROE looks acceptable. Additionally, the company’s ROE is similar to the industry average of 13%. Universal Health Services’ decent returns are not reflected in Universal Health Services’ lackluster five-year net income growth average of 4.6%. We believe that low growth, when returns are moderate, could be the result of certain circumstances such as low earnings retention or poor capital allocation.

We then benchmarked Universal Health Services’ net income growth against the industry and found that the company’s growth figure is below the industry average growth rate of 16% over the same period. , which is a little worrying.

NYSE: UHS Past Earnings Growth November 24, 2022

Earnings growth is an important metric to consider when evaluating a stock. The investor should try to establish whether the expected growth or decline in earnings, as the case may be, is taken into account. By doing so, he will get an idea if the title is heading for clear blue waters or if swampy waters await. Has the market priced in the future prospects of UHS? You can find out in our latest infographic research report on intrinsic value.

Are universal health services using their benefits effectively?

A low three-year median payout ratio of 6.6% (implying that the company retains the remaining 93% of its revenue) suggests that Universal Health Services retains most of its profits. However, the low revenue growth figure does not reflect this fact. So there could be another explanation for this. For example, the company’s business may deteriorate.

Additionally, Universal Health Services has paid dividends over a period of at least ten years, which means the company’s management is committed to paying dividends even if it means little or no earnings growth. Our latest analyst data shows that the company’s future payout ratio over the next three years is expected to be around 6.1%. As a result, the company’s future ROE is also not expected to change much, with analysts predicting an ROE of 13%.

Conclusion

Overall, we believe that universal health services certainly have positive factors to consider. However, we are disappointed to see a lack of earnings growth, even despite a high ROE and high reinvestment rate. We believe that there could be external factors that could negatively impact the business. The latest forecasts from industry analysts show that the company should maintain its current growth rate.

Communities honored for high performance in long-term care and short-term rehabilitation

LOUISVILLE, Ky., November 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Twenty Trilogy Health Services campuses have been named to a list of the nation’s top senior communities by US News & World Report.

The annual rankings of the best nursing homes, now in their 13th year, help prospective residents and their families make informed decisions in consultation with their healthcare professionals about where to receive short-term or long-term care in nursing homes. Only 16% of skilled nursing facilities in the United States earned the “Best Nursing Home” designation this year.

The following campuses are the top nursing homes for long-term care and/or short-term rehabilitation for 2022-2023:

River Pointe Health Campus
Evansville, INShort-Term Rehabilitation and Long-Term Care
Avalon Springs Health Campus
Valparaiso, IN Short-term rehabilitation and long-term care

“We are honored to receive this designation from US News and World Report,” said Leigh Ann Barney, president and CEO of Trilogy Health Services. “This reflects our commitment to providing the highest quality care, not just on these campuses, but in all of our communities across the four states we serve.”

For 2022-2023, US News rated more than 15,000 nursing homes on care, safety, infection rates, staffing and health inspections. For the first time, the top care home rankings feature a new metric on weekend staffing and another new metric on infection rates that have led to hospital admissions.

“Choosing the right nursing home based on care needs and comfort is a critical decision for potential residents and their families,” said Zach Adams, health data engineer at US News. “The Best Nursing Homes Rankings highlight nursing homes that excel in both short-term rehabilitation and long-term care needs.”

The Best Nursing Homes methodology considers data such as resident care, safety and outcomes. To calculate the ratings for the top nursing homes, US News assessed each nursing home’s performance using a variety of data obtained from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Short-term and long-term evaluations include data on consistency of RN staffing, use of antipsychotics, and success in preventing emergency room and hospital visits.

The long-term care rating also includes metrics on whether a home has changed ownership and how well it was staffed on weekends. The short-term rehabilitation rating also includes measures of a home’s success in preventing falls, preventing serious infections and ensuring residents are able to return home.

The pilot program aims to expand mental health services for students.

ELLSWORTH, Maine — From homework to making friends to extracurricular activities, students can have a lot to do at once.

When it comes to mental health support in schools, the National Association of School Psychologists recommends one in-house psychologist for every 500 students. But in Maine, the average is one school psychologist for every 1,500 students.

To bridge this gap so students can focus on what matters most, Ellsworth Elementary Middle School has adopted a new pilot program with Community Health and Counseling Services (CHCS), adding telehealth to its already existing partnership.

“It’s a burden for families to be able to pick up students, take them [to a session,] bring them back, or even schedule after school when kids miss activities they could be involved in,” said April Clifford, principal of Ellsworth Elementary School. “It really connects with the school and allow them to do it here.”

The grant-funded program will allow K-8 students to participate in a telehealth call whenever they feel stressed or need extra support.

“These students would then exit the classroom, be able to access the clinic remotely, receive this service, and then the community health worker would bring the student back to class,” said CHCS executive director Dale Hamilton.

The school hopes the extra support will help pupils when guidance at school might not be enough. According to Educate Maine, one in four high school students in the state reported feeling sad or hopeless for two weeks or more.

“School is where students spend the majority of their days,” Hamilton said. “So to be able to have these readily available resources to meet those needs, we think the outcomes will be better both in terms of treatment needs and educational needs.”

Bob Hoyt is the master of DIY projects. But what many people consider a hobby, he sees as an essential part of his recovery from addiction.

“To find a routine and things to look forward to and a goal to reach and finish and finish, you know, have a goal and finish it and work through to the end like something new, like something I don’t didn’t do before recovery,” says Hoyt, a certified peer recovery advocate.

Hoyt has been in recovery for seven years and now works for Twin County Recovery Services, helping others recover from addiction. It is part of a new initiative between Twin County and Columbia Memorial Health.


What do you want to know

  • Columbia Memorial Health now has a certified peer recovery advocate stationed inside its emergency department
  • It reduces the response time to get mental health services for someone
  • It will also remove some of the existing barriers to asking for help.

Previously, if someone came to the ER looking for recovery help, someone from Twin County had to come to the hospital. But now Hoyt is already here. He is stationed inside the emergency department as a certified peer recovery advocate.

Funding for the program was obtained through the Capital Behavioral Health Network’s Coordinated Opioid and Stimulant Treatment Program.

“Some of our friends, our patients, our people, come and it’s probably the worst day of their lives to be able to meet someone who has a substance use disorder. I share a lot of stories related to the subject and the feelings,” Hoyt said.

He said reducing that response time can save lives.

“We have a small window of time before someone changes their mind or feels uncomfortable,” Hoyt said.

Many barriers can prevent you from seeking help. The person may not want traditional hospital treatment, they may be worried about the cost, or they may just not know where to start.

“It’s not always common knowledge, is it? And who does someone turn to when looking for help? You know, they’d think you were in the hospital. To correct. You know, so that’s part of why it works, why it’s a great partnership,” Hoyt said.

Every person is different, so every recovery plan is different.

“So it could be drug-assisted treatment. Detox. Detox. Connecting with outpatient services, mutual support groups that are in the community,” Hoyt said.

If someone is not ready to commit to treatment, Hoyt provides them with the information they will need when they are.

Indore (Madhya Pradesh): If you are planning to attend the OPD at Maharaja Yeshwantrao Hospital or any Associated Hospital of Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Medical College on Tuesday, reschedule your plan.

Professors of medicine at MGM Medical College will go on strike on Nov. 22 to protest the proposed transfer of the top job in government medical colleges to bureaucrats. Not only teaching work, but OPD and other routine medical services will also be affected as the Association of Junior Physicians, Association of Nurses and other staff have lent their support to the medical teachers and will join the strike. However, emergency services and autopsy services will not be affected.

Medical professors and staff wore black bands during work Monday to register their protest.

The medical faculty associations of the 13 medical schools oppose the assignment of an assistant collector or an SDM-level officer above the dean of medical schools. “We oppose the appointment of administrative heads in medical schools. The government plans to bring the proposal to a Cabinet meeting on Tuesday. We will step up our protest if the government adopts such a proposal,” Madhya Pradesh Association of Professors of Medicine President Dr Arvind Ghanghoria said in a press statement. “We are also asking the Chief Minister and the Minister of Medical Education for time to discuss the matter as we will have no choice but to strike,” Dr Ghanghoria added.

A health care leader fired by Prime Minister Danielle Smith has hit back in an open letter, saying her abusive and divisive attacks, mixed with “distorted” anti-science beliefs, make her a poor excuse for a leader.

EDMONTON — A health care leader fired by Premier Danielle Smith has hit back in an open letter, saying her abusive and divisive attacks, mixed with “distorted” anti-science beliefs, make her a poor excuse for a leader and one that literally puts Albertans in the wrong.

“(Albertans) are entitled to principled governance that respects decency and inspires confidence in its citizens,” Tony Dagnone said in the letter released Friday.

He was one of 11 Alberta Health Services board members recently fired by Smith.

“The current Premier is defying all of these aspirations as she level outlandish accusations against Alberta Health Services and its valuable workforce,” he wrote.

The prime minister chose to “play at his misguided supporters who rail against science and academic medicine under the veiled guise of freedom,” Dagnone said in the letter.

“His distorted stance on COVID, which I reiterate was and is a public health issue and not a political punching bag, is nothing short of a breach of the boundary when the lives of staff at the AHS and Albertans is at stake,” Dagnone wrote.

“In light of her lopsided public statements, the Prime Minister represents the darkest of role models for women who aspire to be accepted into positions of influence and leadership.

“Why would a self-respecting graduate want to pursue his vocation in health care in a province ruled by an anti-science premier? »

Dagnone could not immediately be reached for comment.

He and the other AHS board members were fired by Smith on Thursday, fulfilling a promise she made during her successful summer campaign to win the leadership of the United Conservative Party and become prime minister.

The 12th member of the board, Deborah Apps, resigned after Smith won the UCP leadership race in early October, citing concern over the disruptions Smith promised to impose on a system of poor health.

Alberta Health Services is the agency of more than 100,000 employees responsible for providing frontline care in the province.

Smith blamed AHS and Dr. Deena Hinshaw, the chief medical officer of health, for poor advice and execution in the pandemic, leading to blocked hospital wards and forcing the province to impose mandates and vaccination passports limiting freedom.

Hinshaw was removed from his post earlier this week.

The board has been replaced by Dr John Cowell, who is tasked with addressing several stress points in the system, including wait times for surgeries, ambulance bottlenecks, doctor shortages and medical services. overcrowded emergency.

Dagnone, an Order of Canada recipient with four decades of work in hospital and health care administration, said he had no political affiliations and felt compelled to stand up for AHS staff.

“I have witnessed the extraordinary collective willpower of our healthcare providers in the face of the unimaginable COVID,” he wrote.

“All deserve our respect and gratitude, however, the Premier chooses instead to vilify those who were saving Albertans.”

Smith spoke Friday at a meeting of the Calgary Chamber of Commerce, but declined to speak to reporters. His office, in a statement, said the province must take action to address pressing health system issues.

“This decision (to fire the board of directors) was not personal, it is about better outcomes for Albertans, and we are grateful for the work done by the AHS board of directors,” reads- we in the press release.

Smith said there will be no health restrictions or vaccine mandates in future waves of COVID-19. And she said there would be no mask mandates in schools currently dealing with viral respiratory illnesses that are driving up absenteeism rates and filling children’s hospitals.

Smith has publicly embraced alternative approaches to COVID-19, including herd immunity and ivermectin, a since-debunked COVID-19 treatment.

Earlier this month, she announced she wanted to hear from Paul Alexander, a controversial critic of mainstream science who has called COVID-19 vaccines “biological weapons.”

“The Prime Minister takes his nonsense to a new level by inviting a former Trump adviser (Alexander) who was universally despised for promoting medical quackery,” Dagnone wrote.

“If (she) persists in making false, conspiratorial and unsubstantiated claims, she will be responsible for unnecessarily putting health care providers and Albertans at risk.

“His loose, caustic words seem to satisfy his need for bizarre thoughts that can and will ultimately impact people’s lives.”

NDP health critic David Shepherd, responding to Dagnone’s letter, echoed the concerns.

“(Smith) will continue to blame healthcare workers for the current state of care while taking no responsibility for the impact of the dangerous misinformation and conspiracy theories it promotes,” Shepherd said.

“His reckless politicization of our public health care system will make it harder for Albertans to recruit and retain health care professionals and access care.

The Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Directorate (DVAC) has indicted Mr. Enbasekaran, former Director of Rural Medical and Health Services (DMRHS), who was in charge of the ESI (Employees State Insurance Corporation) and three others for bribery, criminal conspiracy and cheating for causing a loss of ₹27.16 crore to the government in procuring medicines from ESI dispensaries in 2017-2018.

S. Amarnath, Superintendent of DMRH, John Andrew, former Regional Administrative Medical Officer, ESI, Madurai and Ashok Kumar, Regional Administrative Medical Officer (RAMO), ESI, Madurai were also named as defendants in the FIR registered by the DVAC.

The FIR said that as part of the criminal association, the accused officers forged a withdrawal for the procurement of drugs for 2017-2018 for Madurai region in violation of standing instructions and neglecting the doctors concerned. Knowing full well that buying valuable life-saving drugs in bulk will result in huge losses to the government. In addition, life-saving drugs required preservation apparatus and there was no such infrastructure or facilities in the relevant department. Their ultimate intention is to gain monetary benefit for themselves from private drug manufacturing units by buying bulk orders.

The accused had created fake dashes for the purchase of medicines for the region to the tune of ₹40.29 crore against the actual withdrawal of ₹13.12 crore which was prepared by a Kalyani doctor. She was transferred when she refused to sign the deed prepared by them.

The FIR said that they thus fraudulently deceived the government by misusing their official powers and caused a loss to the government to the tune of ₹27 crore to gain pecuniary benefit for themselves and to help the manufacturing units to obtain monetary benefits.

NEW YORK (PIX11) – A sobering fact about the mental health crisis in New York is that lately it seems like you don’t have to go far to (meet) someone who is homeless in the metro and admits to having received psychiatric treatment on several occasions. again.

PIX11 News spoke to Patricia, whose face we are blurring to protect her privacy, at a Manhattan subway station on Friday night.

She was calm and kind. But New York City Public Advocate Jumaane Williams said there were too many people like Patricia who were routinely arrested by police instead of receiving treatment from trained mental health professionals.

“It is vital to treat mental crisis as a public health problem. There are fewer mobile crisis teams now than in 2019,” Williams said.

On Friday, Williams released an update to her 2019 analysis and reported on what City Hall could improve its response to the mental health crisis.

He said the previous de Blasio administration ignored his recommendations. However, Williams added that the Adams administration was making progress, albeit slowly.

Among the lawyer’s latest recommendations:

  • Extend the opening hours of the “mobile crisis teams”
  • Create a “non-police/police” phone number for people in mental health crisis
  • Fund and build more supportive housing with full services

“I wouldn’t want the police or anyone in uniform to come and see me. I would find that extraordinarily triggering,” said advocacy coordinator Jordan Rosenthal.

Patricia tells PIX11 that she thinks the city recently did a better job of sending social workers to the subway to physically find her…and then inject her with a monthly dose of an antipsychotic drug.

But it would seem, at least in Patricia’s case, that the city’s ability to provide her with proper psychiatric care hinges first on having enough social workers on duty…and then on being lucky enough to to find.

“They know where I am. I usually sit outside,” Patricia said.

PIX11 News has reached out to Mayor Eric Adams’ office for comment on this story. We did not receive a response in time for this report.
