Charles City, IA – County hospitals all around Iowa receive financial support from the county. The Floyd County Medical Center has requested help this year for the first time in the hospital’s history.
A couple of Floyd County Medical Center representatives went to the Floyd County Board of Supervisors Meeting on Jan. 22 to present a case for financial help. The hospital is requesting $100,000.
Other county hospitals that are in counties the same size as Floyd see $1.48 million in financial support on average. The $100,000 request would work out to be $6 per resident of the county.
The FCMC saw net revenues over expenses of $1 million in both 2015 and 2016. 2017 was a tough year as they only saw a net revenue over expense of $5,500.
No decision has been made yet on this issue, but the Board of Supervisors pointed towards the decision being a no. The budget won’t be finalized until March.
