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.
