Always There, Ready To Care: The 24/7 Role of America's Hospitals

America's hospitals play a unique role in the health care system serving as the safety net for those unable to pay, being available 24/7 to respond to anything from a broken arm to a mass casualty event, and maintaining the resources to respond to natural and manmade disasters. This role is not separately funded. Instead costs are spread across all services provided.
