2017 Chester County Hospital Community Benefit ReportCHESTER COUNTY HOSPITAL IS PART OF AN ONGOING COLLABORATIVE PLANNING EFFORT with 34 other locally focused organizations to help Chester County become a community in which all individuals can be healthy and empowered to manage their health. Separately, each of the 34 group members had its own vision and approach, whether it is health care, social services, community-driven funding, faith-based missions or government action. The potential of our positive impact is amplified when we work together. Collectively, we can all reach a broader number of residents and affect greater change when we maximize the strengths and services that make us each unique.

This process of teamwork is our RoadMAPP to Health: A Comprehensive Health Assessment for Chester County. From this effort came common goals, fresh tasks and creative opportunities. Chester County Hospital's Community Benefit Report 2017 - Health Empowerment Partnerships - shares a few of the ways we are partnering with other local organizations to create new possibilities for wellness and good health among our neighbors of Chester County. 


ABOUT US

Although reimbursement for services rendered is critical to the operation and stability of Chester County Hospital, it is recognized that not all individuals possess the ability to purchase essential medical services and further that our mission is to serve the community with respect to providing health care services and health care education.

Therefore, in keeping with this hospital's commitment to serve all members of its community, it provides:

  • Free care and/or subsidized care;
  • Care at or below costs to persons covered by governmental programs;
  • Health activities and programs to support the community are considered where the need and/or an individual's inability to pay co-exist. These activities include wellness programs, community education programs, and special programs for the elderly, handicapped, medically underserved, and a variety of broad community support activities.

EMERGENCY CARE IS PROVIDED 24-HOURS-A-DAY AND IS ACCESSIBLE TO ALL REGARDLESS OF A PERSON'S ABILITY TO PAY.

Chester County Hospital provides care to persons covered by governmental programs at or below cost. Recognizing its mission to the community, services are provided to both Medicare and Medicaid patients. To the extent reimbursement is below cost, Chester County Hospital recognizes these amounts as charity care in meeting its mission to the entire community.
