A teaching hospital is VITAL

Our commitment to high-quality, compassionate care extends beyond our hospital walls and into the communities we serve. Erlanger reaches out in many ways to help people in our community and across the region to lead healthier lives. In 2008, we invested over $100 million in programs and services that benefit our community.

That covered:

  • Direct patient care, such as subsidized clinics, charity care, the difference between government reimbursements and actual care costs, free care for people who can’t afford health insurance, and bad debts.
  • Professional education, including educational programs for patients, medical students, residents, nurses, emergency workers, and employees.
  • Community education through our extensive HealthLink Plus and prevention programs, including classes, screenings, health fairs, and publications. This also includes the value of employee time devoted to charitable groups, and cash contributions to charitable organizations.
