AA. University Health Care Committee Report
Dr. Brockman reminded Board members that the Health Care retreat on June 13
comprised the meeting of the Health Care Committee. He asked Ms. Young to give the
committee report. Ms. Young, chair ofthe committee, remarked that the retreat was attended by
most ofthe board members and that it was a full day.
Dr. Karpf opened the meeting with a strategic plan update called "Moving Forward” and
talked about how relationships with regional providers continue to mature and how the approach
to subspecialty care continues to be refined. Then he discussed new initiatives and opportunities
in beyond-Kentucky relationships with West Virginia, Ohio, and Tennessee and how a
partnership with Norton Healthcare had strong opportunities for collaboration and growth.
Mr. Sergio Melgar presented the financial report. While the fiscal year has one month to
go, UK should end the year positively. A good indicator is that volume increased in 2010, while
the overall patient volume across the state actually has dropped 2.8 percent. Total operating
revenue is expected to be just under $890 million — an increase of nearly $50 million over 2010.
Operating income is expected to be approximately $30 million, and strong investment income for
the year will leave the net change in total assets for the year at approximately $40 million. The
balance sheet is expected to show cash and investments in excess of $200 million.
Mr. Melgar also presented the budget for 2012. He noted that 2012 is likely to be a
challenging year as operations have to adjust to the new outpatient care facility. The 2012
budget shows operating revenues anticipated to be $967 million with an increase in volume to
almost 34,000 discharges and a modest increase in outpatient activity. Operating income is
budgeted at $20 million. The results include an increase in depreciation of approximately $18
million due to the new pavilion and additional increases in bad debt of $8 million. The major
risks for 2012 include adjusting operations to accommodate the new operating room facilities
