Patient numbers down and income is reflected

July 23, 2013

The consuming public simply has little time for going to the hospital in summer, and Oconee Medical Center’s financial ledgers for June are reflecting that. Kevin Herbert, finance officer for OMC, told the board of directors the budget writers were off the mark in June. “Our total consolidated net revenue was about $864 thousand under budget,” he said last night. The pounding of recent rains on the roof of the old section of the hospital is prompting the OMC board of directors to dole out up to $360 thousand to replace the roof. Though the damaged roof is adjacent to the newer part of the hospital, the roof over the patient tower is unaffected, according to Herbert. The hospital finance committee thought the roof work could be done for $325 thousand, but the full board found out last night that consultant’s fees are adding as much $35 thousand to the costs.
