National Profitability Predictions
Nationally, hospitals are predicting an increase in profitability next month over last year, a budgeting trend that has been observed over the last several issues of the flash report. Actual performance has tended to be slightly stronger than last year, however the budgeted figures tend to be more ambitious than what is actually achieved. As mentioned in the profitability section, this further demonstrates that the budgeting process of most organizations needs improvement in precision and predictive powers. That being said, EBITDA and Operating margins are projected to be favorable year-over-year, with EBITDA favorable month-over-month and Operating margin unfavorable month-over-month suggesting that next month will have increased depreciation pressures from capital.
