The Johnson County Healthcare Center Board of Trustees had their monthly meeting Wednesday, and heard a mediocre financial report from Adminstrator Sandy Ward.
Ward said the first three months of the year have been “slow months” and he doesn't expect April to be any better. The hospital, clinic and care center brought in $1.3 million in gross revenue in each of the first three months, but April looks to be significantly slower, he said, and he is concerned with the budget.
On a brighter note, he did say Medicare payments, which have been slowed by a change in Medicare's billing paperwork, have started to come in to the healthcare center.
Through March 31, the healthcare center is showing a $2.6 million net profit but $677,000 in operating loss.
Financials are close to projections, but said the center is “muddling along. I would like to see more volume.”
