Health systems and hospitals are facing intense financial pressure with rising costs and increasingly tight margins. Approximately half of U.S. hospitals finished 2022 with negative margins as widespread workforce shortages and increased labor expenses, as well as supply disruptions and inflationary effects, caused expenses to meaningfully outpace revenue increases, according to data from Kaufman Hall.
