National Profitability Predictions
Nationally, profitability budgets next month are slightly up from August and predicted to be slightly up from last year. Although budgets continue to predict slightly higher EBITDA margins over July and last year, the anticipated margin improvement is significantly less than in the prior months. EBITDA Margin improved only 6 bps month over month, while Operating Margin rose 28 bps. This illustrates the continued trend of rising depreciation pressures. Year-over-year EBITDA and Operating Margin predictions are more favorable, at around 175 bps. Given relatively low hospital margins, however, this doesn’t signify major operational changes. A trend of strong performance seen in recent months appears to be shifting.
