Advocate Health Care Reports $462 Million in Community Benefits
Date:7/1/2010

port other not-for-profit community organizations, as well as donations such as equipment, supplies and clinic space totaled than $5.7 million. And the system increased its provision of medical education and training by more than $9 million.

Advocate is able to provide these substantial benefits in its diverse communities, in large part, due to its tax exempt not-for-profit status. This flexibility, established through a continuing partnership with state and local governments, allows Advocate’s more than 250 sites of care to deploy health care services and programs tailored to the health and wellness needs of individual communities.

A detailed breakdown of Advocate’s community benefits contributions was provided in its Community Benefits Report, recently filed with the State.
