Article content Hospitals across Ottawa incurred a total of about $65 million in debt during the 2022-2023 fiscal year, and many are expecting the precarious state of hospital finances to continue as costs increase and pressures mount. Those deficits ranged from just over $29 million at The Ottawa Hospital, to $11.2 million at CHEO, $8.5 at Montfort Hospital and $5.3 million at Queensway Carleton Hospital for the fiscal year ending in March 2023. In addition, Bruyère Continuing Care ended the year with a $6.1 million deficit and Royal Ottawa Health Care, which runs the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre, ended the year with a deficit of $4.7 million. Each of those hospitals had a surplus a year earlier. Advertisement 2 Article content Article content In Ottawa, only the University of Ottawa Heart Institute was in the black at the end of the 2022-2023 fiscal year, with a surplus of just over $5 million. Hospitals are required by law to balance their budgets. They must receive special permission from the province to carry a deficit. Ottawa hospitals are far from alone. Across Ontario, more than half of the 140 hospitals posted a deficit in the fiscal year that ended in March 2023. The current situation is considered extremely rare, if not unprecedented. For some rural hospitals, that marked the second year in a row they had posted a deficit. That included hospitals in Carleton Place, Kemptville, Almonte, Winchester and Perth. Many rural hospitals are hit hard by staff shortages and rely heavily on more expensive agency nurses, among other issues. Bill 124 Most hospitals point to the impact of the province’s Bill 124 as a key factor in their deficits. When the Ontario government’s public sector wage constraint legislation, Bill 124, was declared unconstitutional , hospitals were required to pay billions in retroactive salary increases to staff. Some hospitals had to take out high-interest loans or use lines of credit to do so. Most are projecting deficits for the current fiscal year, which ends in March, but that will likely change with repayments from the Ontario government. Advertisement 3 Article content The province, which now says it will repeal the contentious bill, has partially repaid hospitals for those retroactive payouts. It is expected to further reimburse hospitals in the coming weeks, although details remain murky. That means many hospitals could end this fiscal year with a surplus — because they will receive a lump sum of money for debt incurred a year earlier. But that only clouds the worrisome financial picture, say sources. Without significant change, many hospitals could see even larger deficits the following year if there is no broader restructuring of the way hospitals are funded. Additional financial pressures The financial pressures facing hospitals also go beyond Bill 124. The situation is leaving hospital officials and hospital board members uneasy and uncertain about the future, which makes it difficult to plan for the future, or even purchase needed equipment. Natasha Curley, a spokesperson for Queensway Carleton Hospital, said deficits impact the hospital’s cash flow, “our ability to buy needed equipment, our ability to expand services and our ability to plan for the future.” Advertisement 4 Article content In its 2022-2023 financial statements, Queensway Carleton Hospital noted that its liquidity risk has increased “due to the effect of operating losses.” It said it will need “sufficient and timely funding from the Ministry of Health to fulfill its obligations on a timely basis and at a reasonable cost.” Changes in salary have a significant impact on hospital budgets, said Curley, but other factors are in play as well: “We are seeing a larger volume of patients as well as inflation in the cost of drugs, supplies and services. So, not only has the price increased, but so has the quantity needed.” Queensway Carleton Hospital. Photo by Julie Oliver /Postmedia Although hospital officials are generally reluctant to talk on the record about the ongoing financial stresses they are facing, the head of the Ontario Hospital Association has said the situation is leaving hospital board members, who are required to balance budgets, in an uncomfortable situation. The association has urged hospitals to be patient while it continues to negotiate with the province over funding gaps. Signs of the pressure hospitals are under show up in minutes of some hospital board meetings. Advertisement 5 Article content “Unfortunately, the hospital is still underwater financially,” is one recorded in the minutes of an October meeting of the board of directors of Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital. The hospital posted a $6.056 million deficit at the end of the 2022-2023 fiscal year. Other minutes from meetings of the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital board last year refer to the need for bridge financing at a fixed rate of six per cent “to allow the bills to be paid.” The minutes also contain reports of surgeries being cancelled, bed shortages and staffing challenges, as well as the need to spend on capital projects such as phones and information technology even if that requires deficit financing. At Pembroke Regional Hospital, which posted a deficit of more than $5 million for the 2022-2023 fiscal year, hospital board trustees asked if there were any risks to the board for posting “a deficit of this amount”. According to minutes of the board’s May 24, 2023 meeting, board members were told other boards were asking similar questions and they were following the direction of the Ontario Hospital Association and waiting to hear from the province for more clarity. Advertisement 6 Article content In Ottawa, meanwhile, hospital officials said they are working with the Ministry of Health and waiting for details about funding to cover unfunded retroactive wage increases. Montfort Hospital CEO Dominic Giroux said the majority of the hospital’s $8.5 million deficit was due to the impact of retroactive compensation increases following the court decision invalidating Bill 124, as well as increased overtime costs. Montfort was projecting a larger deficit in 2023-2024, said Giroux in a statement. Like other hospitals, it is waiting to hear about provincial funding for retroactive wage increases and unfunded wage increases for next year. CHEO CEO Alex Munter said the regional children’s hospital continues to face a demand that outpaces capacity “like other hospitals in Ontario.” He said CHEO is also awaiting the funding decision on Bill 124, “which will also impact our financial outlook significantly.” The Ottawa Hospital said it is working closely with the Ministry of Health “to close out the financial position for fiscal 23/24” and to determine the hospital’s budget plan for 2024/2025.
