PCMH Posts Healthy Profit For 2010 Fiscal Year

It was another healthy year for Eastern Carolina's largest hospital. Pitt County Memorial Hospital made $39.2 million in profit this past year.

The Greenville hospital said it set new records with 42,375 admissions, 3,754 births and 73,981 emergency department visits. Revenues totaled nearly $920 million.

Last year the hospital posted a $20 million profit on revenues of $859 million.

In the last year PCMH increased its workforce to 6,173 full-time positions, 92 more than fiscal year 2009.

As a non-profit, PCMH says all income is reinvested back into the hospital in the form of buildings, property and equipment. The hospital says it spent over $45 million on facilities, property and equipment during fiscal year 2010.

    Can anyone tell me how much a PT new grad should expect (base salary) if applying to PCMH for the role of Acute Care Level 1 Staff Physical Therapist? I was offered $65K at a SNF in the Greenville, NC area, but not particularly excited to work only in SNF. Thanks!

    I'm staff nurse,left PCMH last year after 10 years on surgical unit. It was good working environment for a while, but gradually work ethic deteriorated. Left cause could no longer tolerate lazy, unethical, disrespectful, foul-mouthed, unsafe nurses and care partners. I worked night shift, truth is that most staff spent much time in break room, on Internet playing games, Facebook, other sites. Night after night I witnessed them ignoring pt call lights, complaining because had to get up to give pt pain meds. They gossiped terribly about each other. Were hateful to new nurses. Care partners covered for others sleeping. 3-4 would leave pts, take 6-7 smoke breaks. Never seen such lazy people, esp care partners. It was toxic/pathologic environment due to staff attitudes, and this is when we were getting good raises and bonuses. I left to take lower-paying job in wonderful work environment with nurses/assistants proud of their work and focused on pts. I'd never go back to PCM.

    This is only a 2% profit - razor thin by industry standards. Glad they were able to make a profit. Many healthcare facilities nowadays are in the red and about to close their doors. Major reasons? Non-paying non-insured patients and ridiculously low reimbursements by Medicare and Medicaid.

    Sounds like a law suit to me.

    There is a reason people don't post names.... Management protecting their livelihood can be vengeful. Just ask those 4 RNs fired for talking bad about their PCMH manager on facebook...Fired.!

    WoW, I just read the posts, over in Beaufort County we keep hearing about how great UHS is and how it is such a wonderful place to work. Most of the employees at BCH want UHS to take-over the hospital, but after reading all of this I am not so sure.

    UHS is STILL in talks with Beaufort Hospital. They just cannot make up their minds. It was rumored that UHS had gone and talked with Pungo District Hospital about buying them. Does any UHS employee know whether this is true or not. I'm sure that it would not be a game with Pungo like it has turned out to be with Beaufort!! Beaufort is acting like they are picking players for a game or something?? GROW UP!! Your not children anymore.

    So, with all the profit posted, why did none of us get a raise? Why do all the top echelon mgrs get raises and bonuses and not the rest of us? Just curious...

    Have you been to Shared Governance lately? Some of these comments are read and the "leaders" are told "they are talking about you and you are all wonderful!! These comments are "meaningless" because people don't post their names and they are not a true reflection of the organization, these comments are from faceless unhappy people who may not fit into our organization and just move on." I don't know if you will ever be taken seriously... The leaders have had a national speaker, Chip Madera, tell them to stop thinking they are all winners and look around. In order to change, they have all walk the talk and face it, not all of their leaders are winners. I would like to see the executive leadership team walk the halls and have real conversations with people. It's simple: people who like thier jobs and who are paid fairly give better care and quality scores reflect positive outcomes. Stop whipping us with the HCAHP numbers!!
