0.4%

of total hospital expenditures were devoted to community health improvement

Levels of hospital investment in activities that improve population health are modest. A 2018 IRS report calculated that in 2014 nonprofit hospitals spent 7.5% of total expenses on community benefit investments, but less than one half percent (0.4%) of total hospital expenditures were devoted to community health improvement activities.

 

A Community Benefit Agreement (CBA) ensures that the community gets what it needs and the community voice is heard in the institution's decisions.
