Sturdy Memorial Reports 27th Year of Positive Financial Status
The agenda included the recognition of outgoing Foundation member Hugh Mason, who has relocated out of state. Mason has been a member of the Sturdy Memorial Foundation since 1991, serving in a number of capacities, including chairman of the board from 1998 to 2003. In addition, five members of the community were elected to the foundation.
Members and guests attending the meeting were told that the hospital had maintained its positive financial status for the 27 consecutive year. The hospital's bottom line from current year operations was $11,837,048. Operating expenses for the year totaled $152 million, which included $7.7 million in uncompensated care for services provided to those who could not or would not pay.
In her annual report, Sturdy Memorial President and CEO Linda Shyavitz highlighted several of the hospital’s accomplishments in Fiscal Year 2012 and thanked the organization's staff and supporters for their contributions to the fiscal year’s success. She used the meeting as a platform to kick off the hospital's 100th anniversary celebration for which several employee, foundation, and public events will take place from January through September 2013.
