A Northwest Florida Hospital Road to Financial Recovery

A troubled Northwest Florida health care facility appears to be on the road to financial recovery.

In January, Jackson Hospital officials say admissions were up for the first time in six-months.

Outpatient care and the number of surgeries also showed growth.

Last year, Jackson County voters rejected a half-cent sales tax to pay for new hospitals in Marianna and Graceville.

A Jackson Hospital spokesman says there continues to be a major financial concern.

Last month, charity care and bad patient debt was up more than 300,000 dollars.

That was nearly $60,000 more than expected.
