Dr. and Mrs. Robert Christiansen, chief of staff at the hospital, and his wife; Robert Blincow, administrator; Jim Carroll, controller, and nuns who work at the hospital. Dr. Christianson thanked the auxiliary for their donation of money to purchase the rapid cassette changer for the radiology department and for all of their assistance in the past. Secretary and treasurer reports were given. Mrs. Marvin Collison, treasurer, announced that the auxiliary raises about $123.85 each day from the coffee and gift shops. Robert Blincow, guest speaker, explained why hospital costs are high to the approximately 75 persons present. He cited one of the principal reasons as the retention of the health care field under Cost of Living. Council restraints. Supply costs have been rising 20-40 per cent each year, but hospitals cannot raise their prices to pass on the expenses. The American Hospital Association and Catholic Hospital Association originally had a joint effort to remove hospitals from government control to be effective beginning April 30, but a recent Democratic caucus voted unanimously to keep the health care field under federal restraints. Blincow continued that hospitals are unique from other businesses. St. Anthony's is staffed 168 hours a week, about four times longer than other businesses. While most businesses have a one-third expense for payroll, the hospital's payroll is two-thirds, about $1,500,000. Each time new equipment is purchased, more personnel must be hired to operate it, the administrator said. Other reasons for rising hospital costs are inflation and an expected increase in the minimum wage. The minimum wage law would increase the hospital's expenses by $100,000. Significant automation to cut back on the payroll would be We sell Flynn Dairy Products to your door every day. BERNHOLTZ BROS.

"There's no way we can charge enough to cover our costs," Blincow said. The net loss of the hospital during a six month's' periods ending Dec. 31, 1973, was computed as $41,270. Blincow showed slides of figures to back up his statements. Occupancy rates at the hospital run about 50 per cent, and money is lost each day in most departments. The administrator estimated that an increase of $6 a day in room rates would be needed to get the hospital out of operating on its depreciation schedule. He concluded by asking that persons write to their legislators requesting that the health care field be removed from Cost of Living Council controls. After his speech, Mrs. Whaley announced that the Red Cross bloodmobile will be at the First United Methodist Church on May 29, and that nine Volunteens will represent the auxiliary in the American Lung Association walk-a-thon. • Mrs. John Roth, Mrs. Harold Eich, Mrs. Leonard Madigan an'd Mrs. Clifford Eischeid became new members of the Auxiliary following an orientation class conducted by Eleanor Stangl Monday afternoon at the hospital.
