|Abstract:||<p>This article presents the findings from a research study conducted on the use of mission statements in not-for-profit healthcare organizations. In particular, the study sought to determine if a relationship exists between the initial "rationales" which led to the creation of a mission statement and hospital performance. The findings suggest that some of the rationales for developing mission statements are indeed more important then others. Hospital administrators should, therefore, pay close attention to the forces driving the development of their organization's mission statement. The findings also suggest that mission statement alignment with organizational structures is of key importance to the mission's success.</p>|
