The Kaweah Delta Health Care District expects to spend 3.5 percent more during the next 12 months compared to the past 12 months. And employees are getting a raise.

On Monday, a $438 million budget with an operating margin of $12.4 million was unanimously approved by hospital trustees.

In the new budget, employees will get a 3 percent raise after July 1. The last time employees received a raise was two years ago and it was only 2 percent, said Gary Herbst, chief financial officer.
