Community Benefit

The 19 hospitals of Piedmont Healthcare belong to the communities we serve. Our promise is to make a positive difference in every life we touch and this mission is evidenced within our community benefit programs. Piedmont doesn't want to just make people healthier; we want to keep people healthy.

In our commitment as a not-for-profit health system, Piedmont is currently studying the region’s community health needs for its Community Health Needs Assessment. As a member of our community, we invite you to take this 15-minute survey so that your feedback can be heard and included in identifying health priorities which we’ll address over the next three years.  You can find that survey here.

To learn more about specific community benefit programs and services at each hospital, check out Piedmont's Community Health Needs Assessment page.
 

In Fiscal Year 2021, Piedmont's hospitals provided an estimated $300 million in community benefits. This included:
  • $137 million in financial assistance for low-income patients
  • $8.7 million in losses incurred from Medicaid
  • $112 million in bad debt
  • $20 million loss incurred from other government programs that subsidize care for low-income patients
  • $22 million other community benefits, including health professions education

Because our hospitals are nonprofits, we are required by law to file annually IRS Form 990 in which we report our community benefit activities within a part of that form titled Schedule H. Please see below for Fiscal Year 20 reports. As soon as they are available, we will provide FY21 reports.
