Report Ignores True Value of Chicago Hospitals
Date:4/10/2009

hat the hospitals studied do not merit tax-exempt status - is incorrect. No Illinois court opinion has ever stated that charity care is the only measure for qualifying for tax exemption.

Editor's note: Below is a response to the CTBA Charity Care Report with charts demonstrating that the hospitals studied are entitled to their tax-exempt status.

The Illinois Hospital Association, with offices in Naperville and Springfield, represents 200 hospitals and health systems and the patients and communities they serve. The Metropolitan Chicago Healthcare Council is a membership and services organization comprising more than 140 hospitals and health systems working together to improve the delivery of health care throughout the metropolitan Chicago region. For more information, see IHA's web site, www.ihatoday.org, and MCHC's web site, www.mchc.org.

Response of the Illinois Hospital Association and the Metropolitan Chicago Healthcare Council to CTBA Charity Care Report(1)

"Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but not their own facts."

Senator Daniel Moynihan

The Illinois Hospital Association (IHA) and Metropolitan Chicago Healthcare Council (MCHC) challenge the flawed assumptions and data in a report that purports to estimate the tax exemption values and charity care provided by 27 hospitals and health systems in Cook County.
