Community Benefit

Community Benefit

To us, community benefit means engaging in meaningful partnerships, cultivating community relationships, and strengthening community capacity. As a non-profit hospital, community benefit also means that any net income is reinvested into facilities, technology, and health care services to ensure that our facilities are up-to-date and our equipment and services are state-of-the-art. Finally, and most importantly, community benefit means providing medically necessary health care services for all patients, regardless of their financial ability to pay. As a non-profit, tax-exempt hospital, it is our obligation to provide care for all who come to us.

Bozeman Health is committed to fulfilling our mission: to improve community health and quality of life. The community benefit process – including all investments, programs, and efforts - is guided by our mission, and is organized into three sections: assessment, planning, and reporting.
