Community Health Enhancement
Creating a healthier community...
Memorial Hospital is committed to helping our community become one of the healthiest in the nation. Creating a healthier community means helping people stay well by
- educating on important topics,
- providing the means to adopt healthier lifestyle choices and
- removing barriers to ensure access to adequate health care.
Memorial established numerous community health programs and services and provides a significant amount of traditional charity care for patients who cannot afford health services. In addition, Memorial also has a unique community health program: Tithing. The hospital allocates (or tithes) a percentage of excess revenues (usually over a million dollars annually) to help local organizations develop innovative programs that address a wide range of community health issues.
Memorial is committed to embracing the diversity of our community and to strengthening the relationships within our community to help make St. Joseph County a healthy place to live!
