The Trigg County Hospital Board of Directors welcomed Stacey Blakely as trial billing manager at the Rural Health Clinic at their monthly meeting Thursday. Former manager Mark Strickland has left the clinic and Blakely will be taking on the role for a trial period, said hospital CEO John Sumner.

Sumner also reported to the board accounts receivable days are down to 48 days.

"At one point the days were up to 116," he said. "By Hope [Jessup] lowering these days, that is why you see an influx of cash at this time. You will probably see the cash steady out over a period of time now."

Hospital CFO Don Michaels reported an increase in surgeries and swing bed days at the hospital. He also reported that total patient revenue for January was $2.9 million with expenses for the month at $1.6 million. This no longer includes the amount of bad debt with the hospital.

In other news, Sumner reported Trigg County Schools has rented the Save on Drugs building to use for the wrestling team.
