Wisconsin hospitals and health systems understand that the measure of a healthy community extends well beyond biometric data and quality care metrics. Being a good neighbor means you go out of your way to help others, knowing that a greater cause is served when we look out for one another.
The intangible benefits of the community engagement stories contained in the Wisconsin Hospital Association’s 2020 Community Benefits Report are beyond measure, as they reflect efforts by hospitals and their staff to connect with their neighbors at a truly human level, in the face of extraordinary challenges resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. The financial contributions of Wisconsin hospitals and health systems to their communities are significant and quantifiable—totaling more than $1.9 billion in community benefits and charity care in fiscal year 2019.
