Later this fall, WHA will publish its annual Community Benefits Report that highlights how Wisconsin hospitals help support their communities, families and patients.
Each WHA member hospital may submit a story in each of the three categories below:
Stories are due by September 6
- Charity care: free care for those who cannot afford it. These make for especially powerful stories.
- Free clinics: tell us about the free clinic(s) your hospital/health system runs or contributes to.
- Hospital-supported initiatives: identify a priority from your community health needs assessment and explain how the hospital/health system led an effort to address it. If you engaged community partners, include those partners in the story, too.
, and we would ideally like to include a story from each member hospital. We’ve created an online form to make it easy to submit your article.
Go to https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/WHAcbStories2019
to upload your story and photo to accompany the article. Please submit an image with your story whenever possible as that helps tell a compelling story to legislators, the public, and media outlets in both the report and on social media.
