Commenting on the results, Robert M. Thornton, Jr., CEO of SunLink, stated, “We have seen encouraging initial results from our initiatives to improve the operating results in our business segments, and we continue to pursue revenue and cost initiatives in both segments. However, there is still a great deal of work left to do. Over the last six months we have invested $673,000 in capital for improvements and upgrades in our facilities. We have also implemented programs in each facility to aggressively market our hospitals, physicians and clinics to our communities. We have spent over $250,000 to upgrade our technology and systems, and added two corporate information technology personnel to make our operations more efficient and create a better experience for our patients and physicians. We believe these initiatives position us to generate positive returns from an economic upturn and maintain appropriate discipline during these difficult times.”
