Growing losses at Aurora Sinai raise questions about its future

The Journal Sentinel, January 9, 2012

Aurora Health Care is downplaying the disclosure last week that it would consider closing Aurora Sinai Medical Center, a critical source of care for the low-income neighborhoods near its downtown campus. The hospital—which saw 303,402 nonemergency visits and 68,196 emergency visits in 2010—has consistently lost money, turning only a slight profit once in the past decade. In a statement Thursday, Aurora said it was exploring a variety of options for the hospital because of losses that are projected to hit $30 million this year.
