The Buena Vista County Hospital has its eye on growth in the next year budget, hoping for increases in surgical procedures, renal dialysis and rehabilitation services.
The BVCH Board of Trustees approved the 2001-2002 fiscal budget at its monthly meeting this week. Net operating income is budgeted at $794,000, which is a 4.3 percent profit margin. Total income, including taxes and interest is projected at $1,397,000, a 7.6 percent margin.
"I think it's aggressive, but achievable," said administrator Jim Sinek.
Sinek said growth is what drives the budget for the coming year. High on the list of priorities includes the Women's Health Center, rehabilitation services and renal dialysis.
The next building project will include the much anticipated Women's Health Center, which BVCH officials hope sets a standard for women's health services across the area.
