September net income was $210,010 as compared to a projected $63,992 loss. Bailey said much of the surplus was driven by an almost $255,000 Medicare reimbursement payment.
Gross patient revenue on the month was $3.4 million which was almost 22 percent or $611,456 ahead of projections. Total inpatient revenue was $136,516 or 14.17 percent over budget. Inpatient acute revenues were at $846,607; swing bed revenues at $253,210; and outpatient revenues at $1,998,600.
Total expenses in September were just over $1.8 million that included almost $894,000 in salaries.
