UTLAUT MEMORIAL FOUNDATION ANNUAL MEETING

 

It was a large crowd that gathered for the Utlaut Memorial Foundation annual meeting and reception Monday night at the Greenville First United Methodist Church.  One of the first orders of business was the recognition and election of the Greenville Regional Hospital Board of Directors.  Elected to serve for three years were Bart Caldieraro, Morris Bond, Sally Bolen, Jill Young and Leonard Taylor. Mike Coling and Dr. Richard Funneman were both elected to serve 1-year terms.  A copy of the 2008 Greenville Regional Hospital annual report was given to all attendees.  It showed that the hospital has treated nearly 85,000 patients since it first opened its doors in 1960.  Net patient revenue for the hospital was up in 2008 by just over 2 million dollars when compared to 31.8 million dollars in 2007.  The Auxiliary set a record for fund raising with $276,000 in 2008.   In all, Greenville Regional Hospital showed a total operating revenue of $34,190,445 against expenses of $33,794,090 for this past year.
