COMMUNITY BENEFIT

Barnes-Jewish Hospital invests millions of dollars and many volunteer hours in the St. Louis community each year, and the impact can be seen in the thousands of people whose lives are better today as a result.

In 2015, Barnes-Jewish Hospital provided nearly $116 million in charitable care to members of our community. Our charitable program supports patients who have demonstrated financial need and who have medical conditions for which we are uniquely qualified to provide care.

Community Health Needs Assessment
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) wants to be certain that not-for-profit hospitals are helping their communities. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) was passed into law in March 2010. It requires hospitals with tax exempt status to carefully explore the community’s needs every three years and create an action plan to address the needs.
