Our Fiscal Health
Texas Health Resources is fortunate to operate in the nation's
third-fastest growing state.2 The population of our
service area is projected to increase by 88.7 percent by 2040,
which is double the national growth rate.3 To ensure
we can grow with our communities' needs, we are building deep
financial reserves to ensure adequate operating capital, and to
invest in innovation and growth.
Simultaneously, we are preparing for and counterbalancing
declines in revenue resulting from health care reform:
- Medicare is reducing what it pays hospitals for health care
services - while costs of these services continue to escalate.
- Texas leaders have publicly stated that state funds will
not be used to expand Medicaid, which increases our burden for
- Employers and payors are demanding reductions in health
To prepare for an influx of patients, we have and will continue
to invest in outpatient service centers, ambulatory surgery
centers and integrated health campuses. This is generating
incremental revenue and helping to provide a cohesive continuum
of care for our patients.
