SAMARITAN HEALTHCARE ADJUSTS BUDGET AND EXPENSES DUE TO COVID-19
MOSES LAKE – Since March 1st, Samaritan Healthcare has seen a 40% decline in patient volumes, and a loss of $15 million dollars in gross patient revenue. With Governor Inslee’s proclamation that closed elective surgical procedures in mid-March and the “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” order that was implemented on March 23rd, Samaritan has experienced significant decreases in patient volumes across the entire organization, even in areas like the Emergency Department.
