HUMC Board Meeting – streaming live @ 7:00

MILE SQUARE VIEW EXCLUSIVE

Update: Post Meeting


The Hospital is seeing some benefits from the new emergency room.  At this meeting the numbers showed a significant boost in the admissions and also surgeries.  The numbers overall are a bit off from projections but far more in line than recent years. One big concern is the accounts payable.  There was an increase from the average of 123 days to 129 with $16.8MM estimated outstanding. The new board showed a strong unified voice and looks to be very active in the oversight role, a drastic improvement from years past. MSV will update some additional information later as the board members went into executive session.  Apologies for some of the audio, the room had fans running due to the heat and members are not using microphones.

========================================

MSV will be broadcasting live the monthly board meeting of the Hoboken University Medical Center.  The hospital’s health is critical not only for those who depend on its services but to Hoboken as the town has backed the institution with $62MM in bonds.

This will be the first live broadcast of the Hoboken Municipal Hospital Authority Board.
With some new members and new initiatives underway, the changes may prove critical to both the hospital and Hoboken itself.

Please note, MSV will not be available to respond during the meeting.  No phone calls or text during the meeting.  Thanks.
