WILLMAR -- Rice Memorial Hospital is proposing a $101 million budget for next year for the city-owned hospital, Rice Care Center and Rice Home Medical, with a goal of ending 2011 with a $1 million net profit.

The budget, released Friday to the hospital board's finance committee, contains a 5 percent hospital rate increase.

It's based on projections of an inpatient census of 30 patients, the lowest this number has been in more than two decades.
