MCDH’s Sweethearts – Our Volunteers
—Posted Tuesday, February 15th, 2011 at 4:58 pm— « »

Valentines DayWe are blessed at Mendocino Coast District Hospital to have the most wonderful group of volunteers in the World!  There are SO many things that they do for us everyday including greeting our patients and our visitors, running our gift shop, taking magazines to our patients, ministering to our patients as Chaplains, going into homes as Hospice volunteers and MUCH, MUCH more.  However, on Valentine’s Day each year they turn the tables on us and they show our staff how much they appreciate us!  They make homemade snacks and deserts and decorate our Dining Room in a Valentine’s Day theme.  On behalf of our entire staff, thank you again to our volunteers!  You are the best.  And, of course, Happy Valentine’s Day to all members of our MCDH family.

Hospital Financial Report Positive for December

MCDH Chief Financial Officer Bob Anderson

At last Thursday’s MCDH Board of Directors meeting, the Financial report for the month of December 2010 and the first 6 months of fiscal year 2010-2011 was announced to the Board and the public.  For the month of December, we reported a positive net revenue from operations of $217,687 and a positive net income from all sources of $305,926.  This is the highest single month for positive net revenue since June of 2009 and the highest month for positive net income since May of 2009.  These results are due to high volume for inpatient, outpatient and surgical services at MCDH for the month of December.   Although our inpatient census tracked very close to budget for the month, we had a higher percentage of acute and critical care patient days this month and a lower percentage of swing days, which resulted in high inpatient gross revenue.  It also helped that other revenue categories in outpatient, North Coast Family Health Center and Home Health all exceeded our budget as well this month.   It was good to see our outpatient services (those provided by our laboratory, diagnostic imaging, physical therapy, etc) grow this month.
