Community Benefit Program

Not-for-profit health care organizations have a rich tradition of providing benefits to their community, and UH Samaritan Medical Center is no exception.

Our Community Benefit Program involves a vested commitment of outreach, service, and giving, designed to strengthen our local community. As we fulfill the requirements of a charitable, tax-exempt organization, we build collaborative relationships, positively impacting the lives and well being of those we serve. Through the targeted use of financial and human resources, we engage the community, educate our citizens, and promote good health within organizations who seek to assist those in need.
