Providence Health Care contributes $84.5 million to support important community programs and services

— Providence Health Care, a regional network of hospitals, physician clinics, long-term care and assisted-living facilities, home health programs and medical laboratories, contributed more than $84.5 million in 2012 to extend health-related services to thousands of residents in need throughout Eastern Washington.

Through its community benefit program, Providence provided free and discounted care to more than 44,000 patients; served 39,000 people through community partnerships; and provided financial support to 34 organizations in Spokane and Stevens counties to help ensure people of the region have access to essential health-related services.

Community benefit includes unreimbursed cost of government programs; free and discounted medical care for patients in need; financial support for essential health services that operate at a loss; community grants and donations; and medical education and research. Community benefit does not include expenses such as salaries, new construction and facility improvements, bad debt or taxes. In addition, Providence wrote off $60 million in bad debt that is not counted toward its community benefit program.

A copy of Providence Health Care's 2012 Community Benefit Report is available at PHC.org.
