The Charity Care Program supports individuals who are unable to pay by providing necessary inpatient and outpatient health services at no charge or at a reduced charge. The Charity Care Program has supported nearly 314 patients in the amount of $534,651. During the 2014-2015 fiscal year (July 1 through June 30), the Hospital has provided $12,874,356 in uncompensated care.

West Milton State Bank’s gift will aid the Hospital in providing needed health services and supporting individuals in our community who, due to circumstances beyond their control, have difficulty paying for those services.
