“Positive trend” for SHCHD finances; Special budget meeting this Friday
Redwood Times

As fiscal year 2010/2011 draws to a close, the Southern Humboldt Community Healthcare District is “in a great place looking forward… with a positive trend, the right team and staff,” administrator Harry Jasper told the SHCHD governing board at their monthly meeting last Thursday, June 30.

Although the year’s financial reports as of May 31 show total operating revenue at five percent below budget and a net loss for the first 11 months of the fiscal year of $52,000, Jasper believes the district is on an upward trend, as evidenced by increased use of inpatient services, physician recruitment efforts, and the addition of new technology that will enable patients to receive more services locally.
