2014-2015 Budget/Business Plan - Former South West Health

The Department of Health & Wellness approved our 2014-2015 Business Plan in which South West Health had to find ways to offset over $1.5 million in rising cost pressures. This includes things like higher costs for medications, and medical and surgical supplies. A large portion of this shortfall ($286,000) is a result of a dramatic increase in fuel transport costs after the unexpected closure of the Imperial Oil refinery in Dartmouth last year. Fuel oil now must be trucked from Quebec at a significantly higher cost.

As much as possible, we try to meet our budget targets by being more efficient, finding cost recoveries and generating revenue. Without the ability to generate some revenue, we would need to reduce or cut health services that patients depend on. For details, click below...
