KFH/HP opened two new hospitals and 14 new medical office locations across its regions in 2013.

Combined total operating revenue for the quarter ending Dec. 31, 2013, was $13.5 billion, compared to $12.5 billion in the same period in 2012. Operating income was $117 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to $178 million in the same quarter of the prior year.

Net income from discontinued operations was $12 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to $2 million in the same quarter of 2012. As a result, net income for the fourth quarter was $529 million, versus $509 million for the same period in 2012. Capital spending in the fourth quarter of 2013 was $1.0 billion, consistent with capital spending in the fourth quarter of 2012.

In 2013, KFH/HP provided approximately $2.0 billion, 3.7 percent of its operating revenue, in support to community benefit programs and services. KFH/HP devote resources to improve the health of our members and the communities we serve. Our community benefit investment supports a wide range of programs that provide care for low-income individuals, support community-based health partnerships, conduct research, train health care workers, and expand access to health care within the safety net.

"As nonprofit health organizations, our financial performance shows we are operating at a level to consistently deliver high-quality health care and service to our members and customers," said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Bernard J. Tyson. "Going forward, we will continue to push ourselves to be even better in quality and service with an even greater emphasis on affordability."
