San Juan County Public Hospital District One recently received the final audit report for the financial period of Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2019. This report was the 2019 financial and internal controls audit which also covers San Juan Emergency Medical Services which is a part of the hospital district. The audit, which concluded on April 22, 2021, is routine and normal for governmental agencies. The report concluded that there were no findings, and the district was given a clean bill of health.

“I’m so pleased to be able to report that there were no findings in our 2019 financial and internal controls audit,” Superintendent Nathan Butler said. “Due to COVID-19, the audit was done entirely remotely, which was a challenge of its own, but I’d like to thank the state auditor’s office for making it manageable. I’d also like to thank former Superintendent [Pamela] Hutchins who was instrumental in making this audit a success.”
