HARDIN COUNTY— For Hardin Memorial Hospital, the waters of health care just keep getting murkier.
After ending a tough fiscal year with a razor-thin profit margin and reeling under the rising costs of health insurance for its employees, the hospital has been dealt another blow.
A $400,000 deficit has capped off the first quarter of the new fiscal year. In comparison, the hospital was about $1.4 million above expenses this time last year.
