OFFICIALS WILL DISCUSS BUYING SANATORIUM VOLUME 87 ESTABLISHED IN 1859 THE JOURNAL CALDWELL OHIO THURSDAY MAY 9 1946 TEN PAGES THIS WEEK! Commissioners To Attend Joint Meeting, May 13 The Noble county commissioners have been asked to attend a joint meeting of officials from six coun ties, May 13, to discuss the proposal that Morgan and five adjoining counties, including Noble, would purchase the Rocky Glen Sanatorium at McConnelsville. The meeting on May 13 will be held with the san atorium officials in order to reach a final decision. It is believed that Noble county’s share in the proposal would amount to approximately $26,000. Cost Price Lowered Although the sum of $150,000 was previously named as the possible purchasing price of the institution, Harold Mark, superintendent, stated that its present valuation, based on what, it would sell at on miction block, would be between $90,000 and $106 000 without the administration building which burned on March 7. Estimated cost of re-h’ulding this struct ion is about $45,000. According to the state law only five counties adioining Mortran may participate in the proposal of io:nt purchase of the sanatorium. Thev are Washington. Perry, Athens. No ble, and Muskingum. Conferences have been held with officials of three of th® counties. Operation Explained Tn a cruestion and answer session, Sunt. Mark stated that the sana torium is now a stock comnanv and that his brother. Dr. Louis Mark, medical director of the institution, owns approximately 90 percent of the common stock and about 40 per cent of the preferred stock. Should the counties take over the institution the corporation would be dissolved. “The sanatorium has alwavs been successful.” Mark said, “and it would be no work at all to fill it up with patients.” He mentioned that a number of veterans have been clamoring for hosnitalizat:on, and stated that the reason for the pend ing sale of the institution is because of his brother’s ill health. Physical Assets Here are some of the facts con cerning the sanatorium: Tt has 42 separate buildings. its average number of patients before the fire totaled 115 the sanatorium has 135 beds and can operate 120 without being crowded. The 115 patients require services of 15 nurses or about 10 patients per nurse. Operatin gexpenses for the san atorium amount to about $140,000 annually. This amount would be divided among the participating counties, should they take over, ac cording to their tax duplicate. On the basis of operational expenses in the past, the salary scheduled for some were as follows: resident physician, $5,000 per year part time physician, $2,000 medical di rector. $9,600 administration costs, $5,000. Nurses salaries vary be tween $95 to $115 per month. “I*abor and food are the greatest cost at the sanatorium now,” Mark said. He also said that the institu tion for the past year has operated without profit since it did not raise rates in the face of other rising costs. He stated that once the jointly owned institution is established it will be successful because it would draw in outside patients. Rates at the institution per patient per day now are $4.50.
