Wine, Wreaths and Whimsy Nets More Than $20,000
The Wine, Wreaths and Whimsy benefit brought in more than $20,000 for the new cardiac stress equipment at KCHS, reported Dr. Ed Alderman, representing the Kearney County Medical Foundation at the regular KCHS board meeting on Wednesday.
October was a very positive month, both statistically and financially, reported Rebecca Mussman, CFO. “Statistically, many areas showed an increase from the previous month, including acute patient days, swing bed patient days, CT Scans, mammograms, physical and occupational therapy and laboratory. Most notably, mammography increased 50 percent from September to October, indicating a very positive response to October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Financially, October’s revenue came in over budget, while expenses came in under budget, resulting in a positive operating margin. Four months into the fiscal year, KCHS’s net earnings are $50,275.21, signifying a positive bottom line.”
Buster Beckenhauer gave a report on the status of the HVAC system and other projects.
A virtual tour presentation of the proposed hospital renovation project was presented. The KCHS Board will meet with the Kearney County Supervisors in December to discuss the proposed renovations and a possible special election bond issue.
