New Jersey hospitals and health systems provided $2.75 billion in community benefits beyond health care services in 2015, according to a new report from the New Jersey Hospital Association. These contributions include free and discounted health care services, community health improvement programs, education, research and other benefits. “Our hospitals are always open to provide health care services, but health care today is no longer centered in the hospital,” said NJHA President and CEO Betsy Ryan. “Good health begins in the community, and this is a $2.7 billion investment in our towns and neighborhoods.”
