Erlanger Health System found better financial footing in April than it did in months prior, but the hospital still fell short of its budget - reporting a $249,000 loss at its monthly budget and finance committee meeting Monday.

The numbers looked significantly better after a disappointing March, when the hospital reported about $5 million in losses.

So far this year, the hospital is $9.6 million in the red. That's a little over half of the deficit it was running at this time last year.
