Oklahoma Non-Profit Hospitals Net Assets Up 34% Under Obama and the Affordable Care Act

From a review of the Electronic Municipal Market Access (EMMA), I found 3 Non-Profit Hospital Organizations headquartered in the State of Oklahoma with Net Assets at the most recent date reported of more than $400 mil each.  Below here are the Net Assets of these 3 at both the most recent reported date and also at the beginning of the Obama Administration:

Total all 3


    2,437 40%

As you can see from the above chart, the Total Net Assets of these 3 Oklahoma Non-Profit Hospital Organizations increased by 34% over an average period of 3.33 years during the Obama Administration.

For the most recent four years, Saint Francis Health System generated $669 mil of Bottom Line Profits, which were an incredibly high 17.2% of Total Operating Revenues.

For the most recent four years, Integris Health generated Total Bottom Line Profits of a $321 mil, which were 6.3% of its Total Revenues over the same time period.

Very positively impacting this major increase in the Net Assets (Financial Strength) of all of these hospitals were actions taken by both the Obama Administration and the US Fed to strengthen the US Financial Foundation which was severely damaged from the financial meltdown in late 2008.

In addition, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) has also played a key role in this increase in Net Assets (Financial Strength) of these Non-Profit Hospital Organizations.

A remarkable thing is that these robust increases in Net Assets of these Non-Profit Hospital Organizations occurred when these Non-Profit Hospitals were also able to substantially bend down the Total US Health Care Cost Curve in each of the most recent three years.

With future Non-Profit Hospital Organizations' Hospital Operating Income being bolstered by both many of the Uninsured getting insurance and by the many of the Underinsured getting much better insurance, both under the ACA,  future Net Asset growth of these Non-Profit Hospital Organizations should be very robust.  And for States electing to expand Medicaid, this future Net Asset growth will be exceptionally robust.
