According to the financial report provided by CFO Dawne Holmes, the Hospital had an overall operating loss of $149,000 in July. So far this fiscal year, the operating loss has totaled $15.9 million.

However, the Hospital has received COVID CARES Act grants totaling $22.9 million, along with a short term loan against future Medicare payments of $16.5 million.

The Hospital has applied $14.6 million of the grant money against its operating loss, leaving it with an overall loss of $1.3 million for the fiscal year. This month, including use of $570,000 in grant money, the hospital had an overall profit of $510,000.
