New Jersey hospitals and health systems provided $2.9 billion in community benefits beyond health care services in 2016, according to a new report from the New Jersey Hospital Association. The contributions include free and discounted patient care, community health improvement services, health professions education and other benefits. “NJHA’s mission – to improve the health of the people of New Jersey – is exemplified by the wide-ranging activities and programs our members provide to meet the needs of the people in their communities,” said NJHA President and CEO Cathy Bennett. “By reaching out and addressing some of the social determinants of health, hospitals and health systems are committing to the overall wellness of the state.”
