Question 1: Finding the Contribution Margin for the Trauma Center
Step One: The contribution margin is the proportion of Operating Revenues that remain
after Operating Costs are paid. Divide the Net Operating Revenue by the Operating Revenue
and express the quotient as a decimal (to the second decimal place or as a percentage.
What is the Contribution Margin?
Question 2: Finding the Profit Margin for the Trauma Center
Step One: The profit margin is the proportion of Total Revenues (Operating plus NonOperating Revenues) that remain after all costs have been paid, including taxes. Divide the
Net Earnings After Tax by the Total Revenue (sum of operating and non-operating
revenues) and express the quotient as a decimal (to the third decimal place) or as a
percentage (to the first decimal place).
What is the Profit Margin?
Question 3: Setting fees per overnight stay by their target contribution margin
(Do not use the Cost & Benefit numbers to answer this problem. Only use the numbers
given in the question below.)
Let us suppose that a hospital wants to set their fees for an overnight stay such that the
contribution margin on a hospital room will be 32%. The cost to the hospital of an
overnight stay (staff, physical equipment, and supplies) is \$410. What fee should they
charge to obtain a contribution margin of 32%? [Hint: if the contribution margin is 32%,
then the \$410 cost is 68% of Operating Revenues.]
What is the target fee for an overnight stay? In other words, what must the Operating
Revenues from that one room be?

Econ 240: Assignment 6: Costs and Benefits for Question Set 6
Use this information together with the instructions on your Question Set to answer the questions.
OPERATING AND NON-OPERATING COSTS AND REVENUES FOR TRAUMA CENTER
This document rearranges our variable and fixed cost information into the Operating and NonOperating Costs that would appear on an Income Statement, so that a contribution margin and
profit margin can be calculated. [Notice that Revenues are now shown in a right-hand column and
costs are shown in a left-hand column.]
Operating Costs relate directly to patient care. Our previous labor costs, equipment costs, and a
portion of the building cost are directly related to patient care and reported as Operating Costs.
The remainder of the building and administrative costs are reported as Non-Operating costs.
Health care facility Income Statements may report Non-Operating Revenue separately as well,
since an accurate calculation of contribution margin requires that patient fees alone be set against
the operating costs incurred to treat patients.
