Community Benefit

The community benefits from OhioHealth’s mission to improve health and wellness in the areas we serve.

One of the most tangible measures of OhioHealth's value to our communities is the amount of "community benefit" we provide annually. Every single dollar OhioHealth earns is reinvested in our community to improve the quality of care to our patients and their families. 

In fiscal year 2015 (FY15), OhioHealth reinvested nearly $278 million in the communities we serve.

This included $63.8 million in charity care and $160.9 million in unreimbursed Medicaid costs. The total does not include millions of dollars in free care provided by affiliated and employed physicians practicing at neighborhood clinics throughout central Ohio.

In addition to providing charity care, we improve community healthcare in many important ways, including:

  • Investment in research, innovation and technology to improve quality of care
  • Philanthropy that enhances and expands vital healthcare programs and services
  • Community outreach and education that deliver essential care to those in need
  • Subsidizing essential community health services
  • Creating lasting community partnerships that extend our health and wellness ministry

We are proud to work with the communities we serve and look forward to continuing to provide these important and lasting benefits. Thank you for another year of successful partnership that delivers broad benefits to our community.
