How is your hospital funded?
NO TAX FUNDING. Community Memorial Hospital is a nonprofit township owned hospital. Yet, while CMH is a government entity, we do not receive tax funding or operational support from local, state, or federal governments.
NO NETWORK FUNDING. Community Memorial Hospital is not owned or managed by Lutheran Health Network (LHN). Rather, we are an independent affiliate of LHN. This affiliation allows us to utilize many of LHN’s services and take advantage of group purchasing contracts. However, CMH does not receive any operational funding from LHN.
SELF-SUPPORTING NONPROFIT HOSPITAL. Our operating revenue is generated by 1) patient volume/service delivery and 2) philanthropic gifts from individuals and businesses who support our mission. We receive payment for services from Medicare, Medicaid, commercial and managed care companies, and from self-pay patients. In 2011, Community Memorial Hospital provided $1.5
million in charity care to patients who were unable to pay.
How can you support CMH?
Community Memorial Hospital would not exist as we know it today without the ardent support of the CMH Auxiliary and the CMH Foundation. The community volunteers who are active in these two organizations are to be commended for their tireless efforts as they work to raise funds to support our hospital.
