The financial audit is in for our county hospital’s 2015 fiscal year.
They lost $76.8 million which is far better than the $141.1 million they lost the year before.
Luckily for them our property taxes gave them $68.6 million for maintenance and operations during that period. They also got $17.2 million for us in property taxes to be used to make debt service payments.
While the county hospital exists to help people get well, I think it is fair that these numbers make many of us sick.
We deserve better
