Facing another difficult year since the start of the pandemic, U.S. health systems continue to struggle with staffing shortages, rising labor costs, supply chain disruptions, increasing interest rates.

In the latest annual survey on healthcare trends by Kaufman Hall, the Current State of Hospital Finances: Fall 2022 Update provides key findings about recent and projected performance through the rest of 2022.

Takeaways include:

  • Expense projections are significantly elevated from pre-pandemic levels—an increase of nearly $135 billion over 2021.
  • Projections for the rest of 2022 indicate margins will be down 37% relative to pre-pandemic levels.
  • U.S. hospitals are likely to face billions of dollars in losses in 2022, which would result in the most difficult year for hospitals and health systems since the beginning of the pandemic.
