4 It is the responsibility of the Board of Directors and senior management to monitor and ensure the financial health of Saint Vincent’s and to provide the best care and services for residents, utilizing available resources.
5 Since 2005 we have assessed our operational shortfall. We have been working on options to ensure Saint Vincent’s is sustainable into the future.We have actively implemented efficiencies to decrease the deficit.
6 Budget at Saint Vincent’s 84% staffing – wages & benefits16% supplies, food, utilities, etc.Daily rate is set by Dept. of Health & Wellness
7 Capital Funding 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.
8 Our Land 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.
9 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.
10 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.
11 All health care organizations are being asked to be efficient given the increasing cost of healthcare along with the fiscally restrained situation in government.

15 From 2011/2012 to 2013/2014 – funding from DWH for operating costs has increased by $70,444 – 4.43% 2013/2014 budget 1% - actual operating expenditures have increased by $181,567 – 10.81% A short fall of $111,123 (projected) The fastest growing expenses are: Food – Power – Water - Laundry
16 No more cuts to expenses and salaries means having to revenue. Opportunities for generating revenue is very limited.Have applied for federal, provincial & HRM grants.
17 The Fundraising Campaign is ongoing to pay for much needed equipment and renovations – this money does not go into operations.
