WARREN -- Although reporting a net loss for the past month of $7,528.56 and an operating loss of $21,400, the financial report presented to the Bradley County Hospital board during its August 23 monthly meeting indicated the efforts by the hospital are beginning to pay off.

Finances are looking better and usage of the facility are up. Removing the depreciation cost would result in a reasonable profit for the month.

According to CEO Steve Henson, who went over the finances in detail, "while the hospital has work to do, I believe we are making progress."

By all accounts Bradley County Medical Center is one of the stronger rural hospitals in Arkansas. The board was informed the hospital has 106 days of operating cash on hand.

Upon a recommendation by Mr. Henson, the board voted to make three purchases for equipment utilizing sales tax funds. A bar code machine, and new health information server and a new ventilator.
