Year-to-date hospitals have struggled to rebound from winter surges and new spikes in COVID-19. Median operating margins declined for the fourth straight month with patient volume down 6.5%, revenue down 7%, and expenses continued to climb well above pre-pandemic levels and 9.6% year-to-date higher than 2021
