Community Benefit


What is Community Benefit?

The term ‘Community Benefit’ describes programs or activities that provide treatment and/or promote health and healing as a response to identified community needs. These programs are not provided for marketing purposes. A community benefit must meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • Generates a low or negative margin
  • Responds to needs of special populations, such as persons living in poverty and other disenfranchised persons
  • Supplies services or programs that would likely be discontinued-or would need to be provided by another not-for-profit or government provider– if the decision was made on a purely financial basis
  • Responds to public health needs
  • Involves education or research that improves overall community health
