Despite a slower than average previous month that caused a $232,254 drop in revenues at the Adams Memorial Hospital (AMH), hospital trustees recently learned that the hospital still is $318,791 in the black for the 2010 year.
"Most rural hospitals our size would be tickled pink to have the financial picture we do," pointed out Adams Health Network (AHN) Executive Director Marvin L. Baird after the financial report was delivered to trustees by Dane Wheeler, AHN chief financial officer.
Five members of a Fort Wayne family were injured in a car-buggy mishap at 6:53 p.m. Friday on U.S. 27.
An Adams County Sheriff's Department report said the accident occurred when a buggy driven by John V. Shetler, Jr., 19, rural Geneva, pulled out of a driveway near C.R. 300S onto U.S. 27 into the path of a car driven northbound by Brad A. Canter, 38, Fort Wayne.
The occupants of the Canter vehicle were injured in the resulting collision and taken to area hospitals.
