February 2009
Las Vegas Business Press (10712186);2/2/2009, Vol. 26 Issue 5, pP12
The article announces that the St. Rose Dominican Rose de Lima Hospital management has instituted new tactics in preparation for its planned make-over. The 62-year old institution reported an operating loss of $5 million during the 2008 fiscal year and is expecting more losses in 2009. The hospital attributes its losses to the high number of charity cases and low income Medicaid patients which pays off 10% of bills by people who could not pay their bills.
