JFL Hospital Board Hopeful on Finances and Projects

The report of Tim Lessing, Gov. Juan F. Luis Hospitals chief financial officer, to the hospitals governing board of directors on Wednesday probably would not have made a businessman happy expenses were higher than income. However, Lessing said, Overall, May has been a good month, suggesting the figures show continued improvement.

Some of the figures Lessing presented included charges for services, $14.6 million; an amount 11 percent higher than expected. Year-to-date charges are 6.6 percent higher than expected, he said.

Expenses for the month were $7 million while only $6.6 million had been budgeted for them.
