ADDITIONS COMING TO BOCA RATON REGIONAL HOSPITAL
BRRH has received a $10M donation from business woman Christine E. Lynn and is developing the Christine E. Lynn Womens Health & Wellness Institute with this donation. Another donation will enable renovation and updating of the orthopedic rooms beginning in early 2011.
Some revenue slid IN 1Q 2010 because the hospital started a discount program for uninsured patients who now get 50% off gross charges at the hospital. With uninsured patients paying smaller bills, there was less bad debt on the hospital’s books. The loss was less than the same quarter last year which was $4.1M.
Typically, 3Q is the slowest part of the year for admissions as more patients are seen when the snowbirds are in the area in the winter months.
