A few minutes of your time can make a significant difference in ensuring the long-term stability of our hospitals
Pennsylvania hospitals care for the sick, improve the health of our communities, and are an integral part of the economy.
Pennsylvania’s hospitals are experiencing extreme financial losses as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Revenue from cancelled “non-essential” surgeries—as much as 40 percent of their revenue—is falling, while COVID-19 expenses stack up. Hospitals continue to:
- Develop surge capacity
- Maintain staffing
- Purchase personal protective equipment (PPE) supplies
- Provide child care for staff and overtime pay
- Dedicate units to COVID-19 wings for treatment
- Set up drive-through testing sites
Based on total net patient revenues of $47.7 billion during 2019, Pennsylvania hospitals are losing more than $1.5 billion per month.
