Greater Regional Medical Center provides community benefit
Greater Regional Medical Center provides $1,615,084 in community benefits to southwest and south-central Iowa, according to a recently completed assessment of those programs and services. That amount, based on 2011 figures, includes $1,287,060 in uncompensated care and $328,024 in free or discounted community benefits that Greater Regional specifically implemented to help residents in the service region.
Community benefits are activities designed to improve health status and increase access to health care. Along with uncompensated care (which includes both charity care and bad debt), community benefits include such services and programs as health screenings, support groups, counseling, immunizations, nutritional services and transportation programs.
The results for Greater Regional Medical Center are included in a statewide report by the Iowa Hospital Association (IHA) that shows Iowa hospitals provided community benefits in 2012 valued at nearly $1.6 billion, including more than $641 million in charity care. All 118 of Iowa’s community hospitals participated in the survey.
