New Jersey Hospitals Post Razor Thin 0.6 Percent Operating Margin for 2006, Down 1 Percent from 2005
Date:11/29/2007

PRINCETON, N.J., Nov. 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- New Jersey's hospitals suffered a 1 percent decrease in year-end operating margins for 2006, according to the latest edition of the New Jersey Hospital Association's 2007 Financial Status of New Jersey Hospitals Report. In fact, New Jersey hospital profit margins have been at less than 2 percent for the last two years.

Compiled from audited financial data submitted by acute care and specialty hospitals and health systems statewide, the report shows total 2006 hospital revenues of $17.129 billion and total expenses of $17.023 billion. The resulting $106 million gain represents a 0.6 percent operating margin, down from 1.6 percent posted at year-end 2005.

This consolidated financial analysis represents more than 93 percent of all acute care sites as well as specialized or rehabilitation hospitals.

"Insufficient reimbursement from Medicare, Medicaid and the state charity care program are some of the major factors contributing to N.J. hospitals' low operating margins and low cash levels. In fact, more than 40 percent of our hospitals are operating in the red, and that number will continue to increase unless some major changes are made in charity care funding, along with adequate payments from other key payers," said NJHA President Gary Carter.

Other key indicators from the 2007 Financial Status of New Jersey Hospitals include:

-- Average total margin, which includes income from restricted and non-operating funds such as grants and endowments, was 3.1 percent, up from 1.4 percent in 2005.

-- The average number of days a patient's bill was in accounts receivable was 48 days, down slightly from 49 days last year.

-- The average number of days hospitals had cash on hand to operate if all other funding sources stopped was 45.1, relatively unchanged from the 45.3 days calculated for 2005.

-- The average time it took a hospital to pay its bills wen
