Explanation of Types of Community Benefit Support

1) Charity care is the estimated cost of providing discounted or free services to patients that qualify for financial assistance.

4) Health Professions Education includes the cost of training programs for students pursuing health care careers.

6) Cash & in-kind contributions are grants given to individuals in need and charitable organizations in the community.

7) Research includes the costs associated with clinical trials whose results are made available to the public.
