These connections include:
- Capital Investments to provide local families access to innovative technology such as 3D Mammography and Radiation Oncology. Over the past five years, KDH has invested more than $20 million to improve patient care.
- Spending with Local Businesses reached $916,000 in 2018 and more than $5 million over the past five years. We believe in a simple principle: supporting each other makes us stronger.
- EMS Coverage that provides emergency medical services without any cost to county government or local taxpayers. In 2018, KDH absorbed an $820,000 deficit while operating its ambulance service. Most years have seen similar losses, meaning that KDH has provided more than $17 million in unreimbursed EMS coverage since 1997.
- Providing Healthcare to local families beyond their ability to pay. In the past six years, KDH has provided more than $18 million in direct charity care - care for which a patient was never billed. During that same time, KDH absorbed an additional $78 million in bad debt, funds that were never collected because patients were unable to pay beyond a certain point. Another $2 million of unreimbursed care was provided through discounts to the uninsured.
