Which healthcare companies excel in financial strength?

Several healthcare companies landed a spot this year on the Drucker Institute's list of the top 250 most effectively managed U.S. companies.

The companies were ranked on customer satisfaction, employee engagement and development, innovation, social responsibility and financial strength. Each organization received a score of zero to 100 in each of the five dimensions.

For the financial strength category, companies were assessed on the following seven metrics of financial performance: return on assets, return on equity, return on invested capital, market share, profits, shareholder return, and economic spread. For companies that made this year's list of the 250 most effectively managed companies, scores in the financial strength category ranged from 99.5 down to 23.7.
