For Immediate Release: Month XX, 2009

 CHICAGO – Financial data released today showed that the newly formed independent Cook County Health and Hospitals System surpassed their revenue projections for FY2009 and spent less money than they were allocated in the FY2009 budget.

Combined, the CCHHS made a positive contribution of about $236.5 million to the taxpayers of Cook County.

According to data from the Cook County Comptroller’s Office, the CCHHS:

·         contributed $231.3 million to the County’s general fund in FY2009

 

·         brought in $194M more revenue then was budget in FY2009

 

·         spent about $42 million less than what was budgeted in FY2009

 

“These numbers show that we are committed to making sure that we are using our resources wisely without affecting patient care,” said CCHHS CEO William Foley. “We will continue to find ways to make our System more efficient while also searching for opportunities to better serve our patient’s needs.”

CCHHS (formerly known as the Cook County Bureau of Health Services) oversees a comprehensive, integrated system of healthcare throughout Chicago and suburban Cook County through its hospitals, ambulatory and community health network clinics, public health department, correctional healthcare facility, and outpatient infectious disease center.

The CCHHS is comprised of: John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County , Provident Hospital of Cook County, Oak Forest Hospital of Cook County, Cook County Department of Public Health, Cermak Health Services, the Ruth Rothstein CORE Center and the 16 Ambulatory and Community Health Network (ACHN) health centers.
