Memorial Hospital

Sat in on the presentation by Memorial Hospital at the Chamber of Commerce luncheon today. Some figures showing the hospital's importance to Carbondale:

2013 payroll $74 million
2014 payroll approximately $82 million

Estimated indirect impact of those payroll figures is approximately double.

$7 million  in charity care to those who cannot afford the hospital services and have no access to Medicare or Medicaid

$34 million in expenses absorbed for those who do have Medicare and Medicaid

144 treated  in the emergency room Labor Day 2014, a new record.
