Visialia Times-Delta

Good news on the financial front was offered by Interim Chief Financial Officer Michael Bernstein at Wednesday’s board of directors meeting for Tulare Regional Medical Center.

The cash balance is up, costs are going down and indigent patient payments are on the rise.

Various methods of payment are now offered to patients. Indigent patients are now offered a discounted hospital bill up to 70 percent off, depending on their circumstances, so the hospital can break even.
