Date:7/1/2010

System reports substantial increase in charitable care and services

Oak Brook, Ill. (Vocus) July 1, 2010 -- Advocate Health Care, a not-for-profit, faith-based health care system, today announced it provided more than $462 million in charitable care and services in 2009. This represents more than one-million lives touched in the communities it serves throughout Chicagoland and a substantial increase from its 2008 community benefits contribution.

Advocate’s community benefits investment allows it to meet the health and wellness needs of its communities and expands access to care. The increased investment underscores the dedication of Advocate physicians, nurses and associates to provide for the underserved and vulnerable.

“Advocate is proud to report our continuing commitment to providing substantial care and service to our communities,” said Jim Skogsbergh, president and CEO of Advocate Health Care. “Our $462 million community benefit contribution in 2009 illustrates Advocate’s healing mission and dedication to meeting the needs of those that we are so privileged to serve.”

Advocate provided $48.4 million in free and discounted charity care for the uninsured and underinsured, and supplied more than $274 million in care without full reimbursement from Medicare, Medicaid or other government-sponsored programs. In 2009, these benefits alone totaled $322 million in health care service costs.

In addition to free and subsidized health care, Advocate also offers programs and services that respond to communities’ unique needs. These include health and wellness screenings, behavioral health services, and school-based health care. Also provided are language-assistance services, such as interpreters and non-English patient education materials.
