Huntington Hospital Provides $129,780,381 in Community Benefits
(July 12, 2018)

PASADENA, Calif., July 12, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As part of its non-profit mission, Huntington Hospital provides significant benefits to the communities it serves, often in the form of free and part-pay hospital care for the uninsured and those with limited means. 2017 marked a historic milestone - Huntington Hospital's 125 year of serving the community - and during the year, the hospital provided a record-breaking total of an estimated $129,780,381 worth of health care services and support to residents of the San Gabriel Valley and beyond. 

"I am so proud to share this report," said Lori J. Morgan, MD, MBA, president and CEO, Huntington Hospital. "As a non-profit hospital, providing care to our community and creating community wellness has been essential to our mission for the last century.  Our ongoing community partnerships and support will enable us to continue this focus well into the future." 

These community benefits include charity care for those patients unable to pay, as well as care expenses underwritten by the hospital that reflect the differences between the actual cost of the care and the amount of money received for patients covered by Medicare and/or Medi-Cal. 

Community benefits support research, education, and training, including clinical research, graduate medical education programs, scholarships, and continuing education in nursing and many other disciplines as well as benefits directed at the community-at-large, such as seniors, other vulnerable populations or the underserved, and those suffering from specific diseases (such as heart failure).

In 2017, Huntington Hospital provided:

  • Health screening and counseling to 1,962 people,
  • Over 2,045 free flu shots to members of the community,
  • Weekly breastfeeding support groups to 3,500 mothers,
  • Senior Care Network Resource Center support and referrals benefiting 5,000 callers/walk-ins,
  • 75,680 visits to Huntington Hospital's Emergency and Trauma Center,
  • 24-hour transportation assistance to 1,053 people to help patients overcome transportation-related barriers to care, and;
  • 'Stop the Bleed' training to 42 local school nurses and 29 local employees to help provide tools and knowledge on how to stop life-threatening bleeding for injuries at school or in the workplace.

These benefits, and many more, are described in detail in an annual Community Benefits Report submitted to the state each May. To review the complete 2017 Community Benefits Report, please visit:
