Introducing our 2015 Community Benefit Report

Community benefit is defined as programs or activities that provide treatment or promote health and healing in response to community

needs. It is integral to the mission of a Catholic organization such as St. Vincent Charity Medical Center.

Over 150 years, St. Vincent Charity Medical Center has demonstrated its commitment to the Cleveland community and in particular to the Central neighborhood by investing significant resources in programs and services that meet these community benefit objectives:

  • Improve access to healthcare
  • Enhance the health the community
  • Advance medical and healthcare knowledge
  • Lessen the burden on government and other community efforts

In 2014, St. Vincent Charity provided $13.6 million in community benefit. Of that amount, $13 million went to cover the unpaid costs of Medicaid. That number represents the difference between what Medicaid pays and what the care actually costs. We believe it’s important to understand that behind the numbers, there are real stories of people being served.

“I can never thank you enough for your care that you gave me. You set me on journey that has not only changed my life but saved my life. I will forever be grateful and humble at the miracles you all do.” – Rosary Hall and Behavioral Health Patient

Providing Care Beyond Medicine, our 2015 Community Benefit Report, illustrates the stories behind the work. We hope you find inspiration in these patient stories that represent our dedication to Teaching; Community Building; Care in the Community; and Care for the Vulnerable.

Our Catholic mission demands more of us than other healthcare institutions. In the spirit of the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine, we are honored to carry forward our healing mission into the community.
