Buffalo, NY - Nov. 2, 2007 - Through the third quarter of 2007, Erie County Medical Center continued its dramatic financial turnaround that began 2 ½ years ago, hospital officials announced today.

With those continued improvements, ECMC renewed its commitment to eliminate Erie County's operating subsidy in 2008.

Highlights of the first three quarters of the fiscal year show the following:

  • Revenues increased 18 percent from 2006, after going up 16 percent from 2005 to 2006;
  • Acute admissions are up 5 percent from 2006;
  • Surgeries increased 15 percent year over year.

Like in 2006, ECMC is running a surplus through Sept. 30, 2007 and is projecting this trend will continue through the end of the year. After the 2006 fiscal year, the hospital returned $3 million of its subsidy for that year to the county.

Bottom-line, Erie County taxpayers will not pay ECMC a subsidy for operations in 2008, hospital officials said.

In 2007, the county subsidy is $10.5 million, down dramatically from annual subsidies ranging from $25 million to $30 million a year in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

"The performance both clinically and operationally of the entire staff of ECMC has far exceeded any of our expectations," said ECMC President Michael A. Young. "While we still have challenges ahead, the taxpayers of Erie County can be proud of that in addition to providing great care, ECMC has reduced the operating subsidy from $28 million to zero in only three years.

"Perhaps more importantly, the hospital is operating on a solid financial footing and this approach to business should keep it independent of county help in the future," he added.

 

MORE ABOUT ERIE COUNTY MEDICAL CENTER:

In an April 2007 report, the hospital announced that operating revenues increased by $66 million, or 24 percent, over the past two years, as costs were contained and more patients selected ECMC for services they knew were excellent. From 2005 to 2006 revenues increased 16 percent, or $47 million, to total $338 million.
