Think about all the people receiving extraordinary care at AMITA Health Adventist Medical Center,Hinsdale.
Generosity sustains us and is central to the Hospital's ability to provide this extraordinary care. The Hospital and the Foundation are not for profit both in our organizational form and in spirit as we dedicate ourselves to the great purpose of healing and enriching life in our community and fulfilling our charitable mission.
In short, your generosity helps us heal.
As a non-profit, AMITA Health Adventist Medical Center Hinsdale invests in community benefits such as charity care, community outreach, and un-reimbursed costs of care for our most vulnerable patients. This has been AMITA Health Adventist Medical Center Hinsdale's ’s mission for over 100 years and it remains so today.
Through sound financial management and philanthropic support, the Hospital also continuously invests in new service lines, innovative technology applications, patient care facility renovations, and nursing excellence despite the challenges we currently face in healthcare. Today, non-profit hospitals are covering a substantial share of the healthcare costs for a growing number of uninsured and underinsured patients. We also face declining federal, state, and private insurance reimbursement rates while costs of healthcare continue to escalate.
AMITA Health Adventist Medical Center,Hinsdale, considered a financially healthy hospital, operates on a very narrow profit margin. At the end of the year, that capital will only go so far towards updating equipment, improving facilities, and expanding important services. Through gifts to the Foundation, our donors add significant resources to the bottom line to help the Hospital meet critical needs and, in an ever changing healthcare environment, these gifts are more important than ever before.
The Hinsdale Hospital Foundation received cash gifts and pledges totaling $2.5 million in 2015 and disbursed $2.6 million to meet hospital needs for capital and equipment, community outreach, our Hospice, staff education, research, and pastoral care. Thank you for helping sustain our healing mission.
