We live out our mission each day as we work to improve the health and well-being of every person we serve. We take care of everyone in our community, including the many who are uninsured or underinsured, and we are making investments that are improving access to care and developing new ways to help people stay healthy. Ours is a long-term commitment of responding to the greatest needs. For example in 2015, our community benefit included the cost of Medicaid payment shortfalls at more than $93 million. In 2016, that cost rose to more than $118 million - a 26% increase.
