Regiomed deficit: supervisory board chairman meibner calls for rapid analysis
Matthias einwag with 316 million euros in annual sales, the regiomed hospital group, which includes lichtenfels hospital, posted a deficit this year for the first time in ten years. The chairman of the supervisory board, district administrator christian meibner (CSU), puts the shortfall at three to four million euros. On 30. In september, he was told that the school would be in the black, says meibner. At the beginning of november, in response to his inquiry, it was explained that there was a deficit of one million euros.
Christian meibner further informs that "the information on the economic figures is presented in every shareholders’ meeting and supervisory board meeting" had been. In the course of the year, these were "repeatedly corrected downward" up to a black zero. Meibner continues: "the figures, which are now so poor, were not presented until the meeting on 5 june. November known." the supervisory board had questioned this in accordance with its function and had instructed the management to take appropriate measures for analysis and countermeasures. In recent years, the figures have always been positive "in some cases very positive", the chairman of the supervisory board declares. "But you can’t and mustn’t use that as an excuse for the losses that have now been incurred." an important signal is "that we as a municipal hospital association stand by our employees". He had already spoken to all four managing directors days ago and instructed them to conduct an analysis and present recommendations for action at the next shareholders’ meeting or supervisory board meeting for a decision. Meibner: "if a good profit could be reported at the end of the year in recent years and a not inconsiderable deficit is posted this year, the management will certainly be able to find the reason on the basis of comparative figures for last year and present suitable solutions." in conclusion, the chairman of the regiomed supervisory board, christian meibner, would like to "discuss the future of our clinics and the 5,000 employees objectively and seriously". The deficit has nothing to do with the financing of the new lichtenfels hospital, assures meibner. The new building was always a matter for the district of lichtenfels and the helmut-G.-been walther gmbh.
On 6. There will be a meeting in december to discuss how the deficit can be eliminated, meibner added. Anna schaller, the press spokeswoman for regiomed, explains herself as follows when asked: "the management bodies of regiomed will work out a consolidation course together with all those involved."
