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.
- 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
