Schoolcraft Memorial Hospital (SMH) had a successful year in the areas of finance, quality, people, service and community involvement.
SMH was recognized nationally as a top performing hospital in Patient Satisfaction, as noted by the National Organization of State Office and Rural Health. SMH currently has a 4 star rating with Hospital Compare, a CMS overall rating of patient quality.
Based on the interim financial statements as of December 31 2018, SMH achieved a Net Income of approximately $1 million in 2018, which equates to a 3% margin for the year.
Our financial success over the last two years can be attributed to three primary factors:
(1) targeted expansion of services
(2) implementation of revenue cycle strategies to improve reimbursement for services provided
(3) targeted cost reductions, which have reduced inefficient spending thus lowering costs while maintaining quality patient service.
As a result of these efforts SMH has experienced a $2.5 million turn-around from 2016 to 2017 improving from a Net Loss of ($481,925) in 2016 to a Net Income of $2.1 million in 2017. As an independent non-profit critical access hospital, it is essential that we remain on the forefront of advancing technology, ever changing laws affecting health care and a commitment to excellence in our community.
