JMHCC highlights past year during annual meeting

Those attending learned about a positive financial position, elected three new board members and heard about the past year’s achievements and future plans at Jacobson Memorial Hospital Care Center’s (JMHCC) annual meeting in Elgin Nov. 15.

In his report to the members, CEO Theo Stoller shared that JMHCC ended FY2018 with an operating margin of 1.6 percent, and the hospital continued a five-year trend of sustaining a positive operational bottom line. This was accomplished, in part, with $125,000 in grant revenue and donations of $40,000 from the Jacobson Memorial Hospital Foundation. An estimated $200,000 in nonoperating revenue is needed each year to sustain JMHCC, Stoller pointed out.

Other factors impacting JMHCC’s financial health has been its average daily census of 27 patients and conversion of the nursing home to swing bed.
