Catholic Health Initiatives, one of the nation’s largest nonprofit health care systems, earned about $75 million in the first quarter of the 2019 fiscal year, posting excess margin of approximately 2% as it continued an operational-improvement plan. 

The health system, which operates 101 hospitals and hundreds of other facilities in 18 states, generated more than $363 million in total earnings before interest, depreciation and amortization (EBIDA) in the three-month period ending Sept. 30, recording a solid 9.4% EBIDA margin.

Meantime, operating EBIDA for the quarter was $215 million – a 5.8% operating EBIDA margin in the first three quarters of the fiscal year. Operating EBIDA before restructuring totaled about $236 million for the quarter.

“Like many health systems, we continue to deal with a challenging environment – but we recorded healthy numbers and look forward to continuing an improvement plan that has allowed us to solidify our balance sheet,” said Dean Swindle, CHI’s president for enterprise business lines and chief financial officer. 

CHI, which is based in Englewood, Colo., signed a definitive agreement in December 2017 to align its ministry with Dignity Health. The two organizations expect to complete the transaction by December 31, 2018, forming the nation’s largest nonprofit health system, with annual revenues of almost $29 billion.
