As part of our commitment to improving the health of our community, we provide funding for many services that benefit the public. This includes charity care and unpaid Medicaid costs for patients who couldn’t afford necessary health care. Year over year, our total community benefit contribution is valued at more than $100 million.
Our dedicated employees also contribute to community benefit. Each year they donate tens of thousands of hours of community service, a benefit valued at more than $1 million. Other areas of support include:
- Scholarships and educational assistance
- Sponsorships of community programs
- Pastoral care and counseling services
- Support for the Kentucky Poison Control Center
- Child safety and advocacy programs
- Community cancer initiatives
