Based on preliminary budget assumptions for 2011, Adams Memorial Hospital (AMH) expects to be about a half million dollars in the black at the end of the year.
Adams Health Network (AHN) Executive Director Marvin L. Baird told members of the AHN board of trustees Wednesday night at their monthly meeting, "I feel very comfortable with the budget we're going to show you."
That budget projects net revenue of $50,556,320 with expenses of $49,992,907 for a balance of $563,413 in the black.
The United Way of Adams County is operating a food and paper products drive in partnership with several businesses in the county to aid local food banks.
Boxes have been placed at a number of locations around the county, including the following: Edward Jones offices, Common Ground Church, Community Markets, M&M Market in Geneva, Eichhorn Jewelry, Zurcher Tire, Decatur police and fire departments.
