Community Benefit

As a not-for-profit, independent health system, Community Memorial Healthcare is fully committed to serving the healthcare needs of our community. Through extensive charitable giving, we ensure residents have access to care, education, prevention and support programs, and more.

Community Benefit services promote health and healing & focus on addressing the identified unmet health needs of the community. For a program or service to be considered a community benefit it must: improve access to healthcare; or enhance the health of the community; or advance medical or health care knowledge; or reduce the burden of government or other nonprofit community efforts.

During 2022 Community Memorial made more than $68.3 million in Community Benefit contributions. Of that, more than $615,000 was provided in financial assistance (charity care) costs where no reimbursement is received and $24.5 million in Medi-Cal and other programmatic shortfalls, which is the difference between what the hospital is reimbursed for care to beneficiaries and the actual cost of providing that care. Other benefits included $20.1 million in Medicare shortfall. Programs supported were chosen based on the 2022 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA).
