About the Authority

Saint Mary Hospital Authority was established by the Bucks County Commissioners in approximately 1973. The five-member authority was created to provide the vehicle that enables tax-free bond financing for member hospitals. The typical meeting agenda includes:

  • Any accountants
  • Appointments for its solicitor
  • Approval of expenditures
  • Overview of hospital performance of the prior year and projections for the ensuing year
  • Reorganization of its board members
  • Review of the audited financial statements
