The COVID-19 pandemic that dominated the world since March last year has not spared Moyne Health Services (MHS).
At its annual general meeting held at the end of 2020, MHS released its annual report.
The report showed while much was achieved in the 2019-20 financial year, there were also significant challenges.
Today we present a snapshot of the report and some of the big items from it.
MHS recorded a deficit of $333,000, a drop from the $1,673,000 profit made the previous 12 months.
When it comes to total assets, MHS is still well placed with $52,750,000 in assets and only $23,704,000 in liabilities, leaving it with $29,046,000 in total equity.
When it comes to occupation, the number of people using the hospital at MHS declined during 2019-20.
The total number of bed days at the hospital were down slightly from 2220 the previous year to 2126 for the past year.
Day stays were down from 70 to 48 while multi-day separations fell from 336 to 217.
In the residential aged-care sector, Moyneyana House recorded 18,174 bed days while Belfast House had 10,869.
Moyneyana House has 52 beds and Belfast House 30, while the acute ward at the hospital has 12 beds.
A number of infrastructure projects were started or completed at MHS in the 2019-20 year.
These included the continued upgrade of Moyneyana House, with 25 resident's rooms being refurbished.
Work has also begun on an upgrade to the front entrance of Moyneyana House.
The Community Health building continues to grow in importance for MHS with the completed building now housing the main entrance to the Port Fairy campus.
The Active Health Hub fit-out is now finished, as is the extension to the ground floor gym.
A new MHS' brand and logo was also launched.
The following group make up the MHS board:
Karen Foster, Julieanne Crow, Lucy Doherty, Brian Densem, Jennie Stinson, Alistair McCosh, David Leembruggen, Sophie O'Keeffe, Trevor Carr, David Knight.
While many businesses and organisations have felt financial pain during 2020, the damage is set to extend into the new calendar year.
Four very important MHS fundraising events were cancelled during 2020 and early 2021, with the revenue for those to now be missed for when the 2020/21 figures are counted.
These include the Murray to Moyne Cycle Relay, the Commonwealth Sheepdog Trials, the annual summer carnival and the Heather Holcombe Memorial Melbourne Cup Day Luncheon.
MHS is one of district's biggest employees, with many long-term staff members.
Victoria Lovell holds the title as the longest serving current staff member with 41 years.
