Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center released its fourth quarter report on operating performance and operating statistics today and reported a gain in unrestricted net assets of $10.9 million for the twelve months ending June 30, 2016 (FY16).

Operating income through the end of the fiscal year was $63.6 million or a 2.7% operating margin driven by revenue cycle performance and increased labor productivity coupled with volume growth in the clinical enterprise. This operating performance compares to the prior year’s margin of 1.8% and operating income of $39.8 million. Cornerstone Health Care, the multi-specialty practice acquired in early May, contributed an operating loss of $9.7 million in the fourth quarter.
