Rice proposes conservative budget for 2012
WILLMAR -- Rice Memorial Hospital is proposing a 2012 budget described by hospital officials as both conservative and realistic.
It calls for patient volume to remain essentially flat next year and to end the year with a relatively modest 2 percent operating margin.
Members of the finance committee of the city-owned hospital reviewed the budget proposal Friday and voted to recommend forwarding it to the full hospital board, which meets next week.
