Upon reviewing the multiple facilities offering healthcare administration support and services, discuss the following:

As the text has stated, there are many different career paths in the field of healthcare administration. Your individual background, interests, and experiences are all a part of which sector you choose to work. In reviewing that organizations that are listed in Appendix A, there are numerous of non-direct care facilities that have an important role in patient care.

I think this example shows the greatness of variety a job can have in the healthcare field. You can always find something that aligns with your interests.
