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.
