The Evangelical Charity Care Program supports individuals who are unable to pay for necessary inpatient and outpatient health services at no charge or at a reduced charge. The Hospital’s Charity Care Program has supported 145 patients in the amount of $626,712 for Fiscal Year 2014 (July 1 through June 30). The Hospital has provided $9,631,007 in uncompensated care to date.

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.
