Cleveland Clinic posted a $1.2 billion net loss in 2022 — down from a net gain of $2.2 billion the prior year — as losses from investments ate into its bottom line, according to financial results released March 1.

Total unrestricted revenues increased 4.5 percent year over year to $13 billion. This is largely attributable to net patient service revenue, which was $11.6 billion in 2022 and $10.9 billion in 2021. 

The system's total expenses increased 13.6 percent year over year to $12.5 billion in 2022. Expenses were up across all categories, with salaries, wages and benefits seeing the biggest increase at 13.8 percent.

Losses from investments in 2022 were $1 billion compared to a gain of $1.4 billion in 2021. 

For the three months ended Dec. 31, 2022, Cleveland Clinic reported $290.1 million in net profit and $104.9 million in operating income, compared with $532.8 million in net income and $196.8 million in operating income during the same period in 2021
