In other health system business, flu vaccination for employees begins Sept. 16: Chief Financial Officer Ken Hopkins said patient volumes were up in July at the Porter campus and the HealthPlex.
“The month of July seems like it captured some volumes from Moore Medical Center,” Hopkins said. “Our net revenue was pretty strong.”
July had fewer tornado-related expenses, and non-operating income was good due to strong investment performance.
July net revenue was $27.6 million. Operating expenses were $27.4 million.
The Fiscal Year 2014 budget was delayed because of the tornado but is now ready and will come before Norman City Council members at the next available meeting.
