Dignity sees return from higher patient volume, new care models
Modern Healthcare

An increase in patient volume boosted Dignity Health’s operating margin in its fiscal 2015.

The San Francisco-based system also continued to benefit from the return of California’s provider fee program, which supplements Medicaid payments to providers. The program had been on hold in 2014 while the state waited for the CMS to approve its extension.

Dignity’s operating margin increased to 3.4% for the year ended June 30, up from 2.7% in fiscal 2014.
