Edward-Elmhurst reports more than $200M in community contributions in 2013

ELMHURST – Edward-Elmhurst Healthcare's Community Benefit totaled $206.3 million in fiscal year 2013, according to an Elmhurst Memorial news release.

Between July 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013 the health system provided 7 percent more financially to community benefit efforts than in fiscal year 2012. That includes nearly $26 million in charity care for medical services provided free or partially reimbursed, according to the release.

Edward-Elmhurst Healthcare provides 100 percent assistance for uninsured patients who earn up to three times the U.S. poverty level. The hospital system also offers a sliding assistance scale for those whose income is three to five times the poverty level as well as an uninsured patient discount and payment plans, according to the release.

Other community benefit efforts included improved access to physicians through Illinois Health Partners, medically based weight loss clinics and the expansion of the Mental Health First Aid program, stated the release.
