Community Benefit Reports
Each of Capella Healthcare’s affiliated hospitals produces a Community Benefit Report. These reports include details on their overall contributions to the communities they serve, over and above the healthcare they provide.
For example, did you know that Capella and its affiliated hospitals pay millions of dollars in property and sales taxes? These dollars help support city, county and state governments, including the funding of schools, public safety, building of roads and assistance for people in need. In addition, some of the other services our hospitals provide for their communities include:
- Providing free health screenings for students, seniors and the public
- Hosting educational programs
- Sponsoring Athletic Trainers for high school or college sports teams
- Supporting civic clubs
- Assisting with economic development
- Investing in recruiting needed physicians
Further, each of our hospitals is generally one of the largest employers in the region as well as one of the largest tax payers.
