Programs: Presentation medical center (pmc) is a 25-bed acute care hospital located in rolla, north dakota. As a critical access hospital, our organization is, by definition, a community benefit. Pmc is a critical infrastructure to our community and is a major medical provider for rolette county, providing inpatient, outpatient and surgical services. In addition, pmc is a key provider of emergency care with over 4,937 er visits for fiscal year ending 2014. Services in the areas of clinic, lab, radiology, respiratory therapy, physical therapy, cardiac rehab, and outreach specialty physician services, are also provided. Presentation medical center had 409 acute patient days, 557 swing-bed days and 1,610 extended swing-bed days. The medical center provides care to patients who meet certain criteria under its charity care policy without charge or at amounts less than established rates. Because the medical center does not pursue collection of amounts determined to qualify as charity care, they are not reported as revenue. The amounts of charges foregone were $29,802 for the year ended september 30, 2014. The estimated costs of the charges foregone, based upon an overall cost-to-charge ratio calculation, for the year ended september 30, 2014 were approximately $30,000. In addition, the medical center provides services to other medically indigent patients under certain government reimbursed public aid programs. Such programs pay providers amounts which are less than established charges for the services provided to the recipients, and for some services the payments are less than the cost of rendering the services provided. The medical center also commits significant time and resources to endeavors and critical services which meet otherwise unfulfilled community needs. Many of these activities are sponsored with the knowledge that they will not be self-supporting or financially viable.
