Monetary figures discussed at Wednesday night’s meeting of the Adams Health Network board of trustees continued to be positive with the hospital showing a surplus of $76,268 in June.
Chief Financial Officer Dane Wheeler noted that, to date, the hospital is $966,010 in the black for the year (although more than half of that money came from a donation from the Evelyn Kauffman estate last month to the tune of $554,243). He said a surplus of $66,272 had been forecast for July in the budget, so the hospital actually was nearly $10,000 better than expected.
Wheeler pointed out that much of the surplus is due to the fact the hospital has had 403 more in-patient days (3,931 to 3,528) this year than at this point in 2013. The daily average census in July was 17.46 patients per day, a boost of 1.79 patients from July of 2013.
