OMC felt the effects of the bug
December was a month for widespread flu, which brought many suffering people to the emergency department at Oconee Medical Center. And from there, many of those emergency visitors went straight to patient rooms in the hospital. The financial reports supplied to the OMC board of directors last night showed a positive bottom line of nearly $525 thousand in December. And, since the start of the hospital’s accounting year October 1, OMC ledgers reflect a positive margin of $1.7 million, according to Hunter Kome, vice president for operations.
