Boston-based Partners HealthCare saw its operating income rise in fiscal year 2018 despite a decline in revenues, according to financial documents released Dec. 7.

Partners saw operating revenues dip 0.5 percent year over year to $13.31 billion in fiscal year 2018, which ended Sept. 30. The health system’s significant growth in provider revenues was partially offset by a decline in insurance revenue. Partners said the decrease in insurance revenue was attributable to the transition of members from Medicaid managed care programs into the new MassHealth ACO program in March.

After accounting for a 2.4 percent decrease in expenses, Partners ended fiscal 2018 with operating income of $309.9 million. That’s up 489 percent from a year earlier, when the health system posted operating income of $52.57 million.

Partners reported a 2.3 percent operating margin for fiscal 2018, up from a 0.4 percent operating margin in the year prior.

“While a 2-3 percent margin is slim compared to our peers across the nation, it enables us to reinvest in patient care and provide for the future capital needs of our hospitals and facilities,” said Peter K. Markell, treasurer and CFO of Partners.

After factoring in nonoperating income, Partners ended fiscal 2018 with net income of $826.6 million, up from $659.1 million in fiscal 2017.
