For Our Community

Community Benefit

For more than a century, Bozeman Deaconess Hospital has been deeply committed to providing healthcare as an essential community service for our community residents. As a non-profit hospital, our investment in our community also means that any net income is reinvested into facilities, technology, and health care services to ensure our facilities are up-to-date and our equipment and services are state-of-the-art. This, too, is an investment in the health of our community.

But most importantly, we provide medically necessary health care services for all patients, regardless of their financial ability to pay. As a non-profit, tax-exempt hospital, it is our obligation to provide care for all who come to us, including providing financial assistance, if needed. Financial assistance is provided when a patient's financial resources are not sufficient to pay for the healthcare services they received. The amount of charity care provided in 2012, together with unreimbursed costs (Medicaid) totaled more than $9 million.

Giving Lasting Gifts

Adding up all community benefits provided in 2012-financial assistance and unreimbursed costs, community health improvement services and community benefit operation, health professions education, subsidized health services, research and cash and in-kind contributions to community groups-totals an impressive $17.9 million dollars.
