 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.”
