For Our Community

Community Benefit

For more than a century, Bozeman Health has been committed to providing healthcare as an essential community service for our residents and visitors. As a non-profit hospital, investment in our community means that any net income is reinvested into facilities, technology, and health care services to ensure that 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.

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. That care may include providing financial assistance when a patient's financial resources are not sufficient to pay for the healthcare services they received. The amount of charity care provided in 2014, together with unreimbursed costs (Medicaid) totaled nearly $12 million.

Adding up all community benefits provided in 2014–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–totaled an impressive $20 million dollars.
