National Hospital Flash Report: October 2023

5 minute
Kaufman Hall CYTD Operating Margin Index - October 2023

While hospitals’ overall performance declined slightly in September compared to the previous month, the median Kaufman Hall Calendar Year-To-Date Operating Margin Index reflecting actual margins was 1.4% in September. This slight increase was due to the historical variation in the performance of hospitals across 2023.

Volume decreased across the board, but data indicate improvement in the overall financial picture compared to 2022.

The October issue of the National Hospital Flash Report covers these and other key performance metrics.
