Community Benefit

The Role of Hospitals in Community Health is Expanding

Ohio hospitals are cornerstones of the communities they serve, caring for the sick and injured and advancing wellness. Nonprofit hospitals measure the impact of community benefit programs and report annually to the IRS on Form 990, Schedule H. The Catholic Health Association publishes standards for community benefit definition. 

Ohio hospitals in fiscal year 2019 contributed $7.9 billion in net community benefit throughout the state, a $553 million, or 8%, increase over the prior year.

OHA annually publishes a statewide summary.
