Munson Healthcare is a non-profit organization that benefits the communities it serves in many ways through direct and indirect patient care. Munson Healthcare reinvests in its communities with measurable community benefit to fulfill its mission of community service and to meet its charitable tax-exempt purpose.
The Munson Healthcare system annually provides $65 million in health care programs and education, as well as free, discounted, and unreimbursed services. Those programs are highlighted in Community Connections, our annual report on community benefit.
Community benefit programs address specific community health needs and are designed to improve the health of everyone in the community. Community benefit activities include initiatives and programs that increase access to health services, enhance the health of the community, advance medical or health care knowledge, and relieve or reduce the burden of government or other community efforts.
