Systems of management The organizations have both decentralized and centralized management formats. In healthcare groups, decision making lies with the leading group authority. Considering that they are profit oriented, a decentralized management system is mostly practiced in running the organizations (Vaughan & Arsneault, 2014).  The organizations tend to have centralized formats of management and the federal government decides on the facilities and services provided by the organizations (Analyzing the Financial Health of Not-for-Profit Organizations, 2015). 
Access to capital Market The organizations have very high access to capital market and they easily raise funds that help them scale up their services quickly In contrast, these organizations have limited access to capital market and it is the federal government that limits their expansion plans. The revenues that they generate is the one that funds them (Vaughan & Arsneault, 2014). 
Strategic Goal for the organization They aim to be leaders in the healthcare sector so that they can acquire the lion’s share in the marketSecondly, the goal is also to provide quality health services and enhance affordable and average revenue per patient To ensure that better medical services are provided to the community at an affordable cost(Analyzing the Financial Health of Not-for-Profit Organizations, 2015). 
Strategic Marketing They use banners and advertisements to market their services and benefits to clients (Finkler et al. 2017). Their aim is to receive funds from donors and thus the reason to market their services (Finkler et al. 2017).
