It is the responsibility of the Board of Directors and senior management to monitor and ensure the financial health of Saint Vincents and to provide the best care and services for residents, utilizing available resources.
Since 2005 we have assessed our operational shortfall. We have been working on options to ensure Saint Vincents is sustainable into the future. We have actively implemented efficiencies to decrease the deficit.
84% staffing – wages & benefits 16% supplies, food, utilities, etc. Daily rate is set by Dept. of Health & Wellness
Is separate from operations. All capital projects, renovations, major equipment are funded by DHW, fundraising, mortgage, etc. The surplus in our audited financial statements adds together the capital and operating funds.
Was paid by a mortgage. This mortgage is funded by DHW and is part of the capital fund. Operations DO NOT pay for the mortgage. Our Land
2012/2013 operating deficit$71,771 (after adjustments) Accumulated deficit$1,078,189 This accumulated deficit has been decreased from $1.6 million over the last 5 years.
We have cut positions over the past 5 years: Housekeeping, nutrition services, management, reception, recreation, pastoral care. We are at the point that further cuts could negatively impact resident care. For example: we are funded $6.40/day/resident for food and we actually spend $6.80/day.
All health care organizations are being asked to be efficient given the increasing cost of healthcare along with the fiscally restrained situation in government.
