Supporting Non-Profits with a Shared Mission

Just one way that Samaritan works with neighbors is through Social Accountability Budget grants.

Grants are awarded in Benton, Lincoln and Linn counties and are administered locally by volunteer committees based at each Samaritan hospital. The committees focus primarily on funding programs that address the unmet needs of underserved populations and improving the health of the community.

"The Social Accountability Budget reflects an important extension of our health care mission,” said Larry A. Mullins, President and CEO of Samaritan Health Services. “We are pleased to provide this support for dozens of local organizations to assist with their health-related programs and services. It is this cooperative spirit that helps make our community a special place to live."

Local organizations that Samaritan has identified as candidates to apply for Social Accountability Budget grant funding are invited each year to submit applications.
