Roosevelt General Hospital is operating in the black for the first time
since the hospital reopened in 2001, according to hospital officials.
RGH Administrator Larry Leaming said the hospital ended the last fiscal
year $875,803 in the black, one year after turning a small profit in 2010.
In 2009, the hospital operated at a $1.3 million deficit.
“It has been a turnaround,” said Leaming, who was recruited
to the hospital two years ago from Colorado. “This organization
for its first 10 years has struggled mightily and especially in the first
few years. It takes time to recruit people and to get equipment. It takes
time to build any kind of business. The difference in the last two years
has been focusing on and paying attention to the business side of the
equation. I focus on operating margin.”
