St. John's Touts ''Community Benefit'' Spending


St. John’s Hospital says it provided nearly $40 million in “community benefit” last year… largely in providing health care to indigent people. 

 

The money spent on “Charity Care” and unreimbursed Medicaid expenses accounts for about two-thirds of the $40 million total.  Hospital officials say the rest came through educational and public outreach programs, like St. John’s sponsorship of the East Side Farmers Market to promote healthy eating, or a program that encourages kids to get more active through dance. 

 

The nearly $40 million in “community benefit” represents around 9 percent of the hospital’s total annual expenditures.
