The most recent IRS Form 990 (2016) reports the organization – a 501 (c) (3) based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin – reported total revenue of $4.629 billion, almost all of which came from program services. Expenses totaled $4.287 billion (including $140 million in depreciation) concentrated in three areas: compensation ($2.252 billion), payments to affiliates ($807 million), and medical supplies/equipment rental/hospital tax assessment ($752 million). Aurora Health Care had $342 million in excess revenue which contributed to the organization’s ability to increase the net assets or fund balance from $4.485 billion in the beginning of the year to $4.836 billion at year-end.
