Changes in the Health Care Environment Causing Dents in Hospital Finances
Maggie Gill, CEO of MUMC has raised concerns over the rate at which hospital’s finances have dipped due to changes on the health department. According to the CEO, MUMC is the only facility that does not benefit from special local financing in Georgia. That, coupled with the increased inability of patients to pay for their bills as well as the lack of a financially stable partner, is the reason why the hospital is projected to lose over 20 million dollars in losses over the next few fiscal years. This was in a message to the MUMC board which is responsible for governing MUMC and affiliated groups.
Memorial Health-Novant Collapsed Deal
MUMC board led by Gill recently approved a deal that would see the Georgia safety net hospital’s bond debt repaid and ensure the expansion of the facilities including the addition of critical care beds, expansion of vascular and heart services, expansion of the ambulatory care and the expansion of the children hospital at Savannah. The deal was worth well over $290 million, a boost that Memorial Health could have used in recent events around the healthcare systems.
