Struggling East St. Louis hospital can't afford patients--or improvements

St. Louis Post-Dispatch, February 25, 2008
About one in five patients treated last year at Kenneth Hall Regional Hospital in East St. Louis, lacked insurance, and another 40 percent were covered by health programs for the poor that pay less than the cost of care. As a result, Kenneth Hall has lost an average of $3 million a year in the last five years. In addition, these losses would have been double without a buoy of grants, rental fees for hospital space and other revenue streams.
