Delaware hospitals report on community benefit

March 5, 2013

Delaware’s not-for-profit hospitals contributed $407.4 million toward free and subsidized health care and community benefit programs in fiscal year 2011, according to a recent report by the Delaware Healthcare Association. That’s an increase of 14% or $50 million since FY 2010. DHA President and CEO Wayne Smith said spending on non-traditional health care services “represents a significant financial contribution to ensuring the basic health care needs of Delawareans are met, regardless of their ability to pay.”
