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.
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.
