LRH AUDIT REPORT RELEASED

Spirit Lake, IA (January 2, 2017) For public record, the accounting firm of Seim Johnson, LLP released an audit report on Lakes Regional Healthcare (LRH), Spirit Lake, Iowa on November 22, 2016:

LRH’s unrestricted operating revenue totaled $37,354,253 for the year ended June 30, 2016, a 2.1% increase from the prior year. Total revenue included $36,178,372 in net patient service revenue and $1,175,881 in other operating revenue. Net non-operating revenues were $545,361, which was comprised of $176,630 in investment income, $650,000 in county tax revenues, and $281,269 in interest expense.

“Lakes Regional Healthcare has historically taken the lowest tax draw of any county tax supported hospital in the state of Iowa. We’ve strived to keep tax dollars exceptionally low while still providing the highest quality care at the local level,” said LRH President and CEO Jason Harrington. “LRH receives 27 cents from Dickinson County residents per $1,000 of home value, which compares to the average amount received by the 42 county hospitals in Iowa of $1.87 per $1,000 of home value.”

Operating expenses for the year totaled $37,102,838, a 4.0% increase from the prior year, and included $14,764,035 for salaries and employee benefits; $9,343,627 for supplies and other expenses; $10,148,521 for purchased services and professional fees; and $2,846,655 for depreciation, amortization and interest.

Unlike many rural hospitals in the country that benefit from cost-based reimbursement from Medicare, LRH is not eligible for that program due to its size and location. However, LRH has benefited from participation in the Rural Community Hospital Demonstration Program, which expired in 2016 but was recently extended another 5 years. “It is increasingly difficult for hospitals, especially rural hospitals such as ours, to make enough net income to be able to reinvest it into the facility in things like new equipment and technology. In fact, one in three hospitals in the United States have a negative operating margin and some have closed as a result,” said Harrington. “Although we have been fortunate to be able to reinvest into the facility in recent years, we face those same challenges. We have experienced Medicare cuts of approximately $1,400,000 annually, IPERS increases over the past five years that have increased our expenses $300,000, and we are increasingly providing uncompensated care to citizens in the county who are unable to pay but had been assisted by the additional coverage provided due to the Affordable Care Act, the future of which is now uncertain.”

In spite of the challenges, Harrington stated, “We are very fortunate to have a dedicated team of healthcare professionals serving our area and in spite of the challenges facing healthcare, I’m extremely optimistic that we are positioned well to continue to improve the health and well-being of the people of the Iowa Great Lakes for years to come.”

A copy of the audit report is available for review in the Hospital Administrator’s Office, in the Office of the Auditor of State and on the Auditor of State’s web site at HYPERLINK “http://auditor.iowa.gov/reports/reports.htm” http://auditor.iowa.gov/reports/reports.htm.

Outstanding Bills: None to date.

Operations: Jess Radcliffe, a rural Milford resident addressed the Commission regarding his concerns with smoke coming from the Dickinson County Sanitary Landfill. Very unhappy this has been going on for over three weeks. A letter was also received from other neighbors in the area, concerned it has been burning way to long. The smoke is very dangerous for all the surrounding residents. Jess Radcliffe would like an answer from the Commission as to why this is happening. Lee Sorenson, Dickinson Co. Conservation Board, explained employees were burning the trees and brush when the fire started the very large leaf pile on fire. They have been tiying to put it out, but to no avail. Finally today Cohrs Construction came in and is spreading the pile down and that should stop the fire. Tim Fairchild explained we should try to do a better job of avoiding such a problem in the future and Lee Sorenson agreed. Jess Radcliffe asked if this does not work want would be the next step, he would like the burning pile to be buried as soon as possible. Lee Sorenson stated that would be an option. It was the consensus of the Commission to spread the burning pile, spray water and pour sand in order to stop the fire as quickly as possible. Lee Sorenson will also call Iowa One Call tomorrow for locates to start the process to bury the burning pile, if in fact the first option does not work. Sawyer Marco, Dickinson Co. Conservation Board, reported to the Commission the totals for December. Green waste was $612, electronics were $342 and appliances were $372.
