The health of a community and its residents is a collaborative effort.

One in which all parties contribute to and share responsibility for its protection, improvement and ongoing care. Hutchinson Health takes a leading role in advocating for better health for our patients and the surrounding community.

Hutchinson Health is committed to providing the community with ongoing opportunities for personal and professional growth, paying close attention to promoting healthy attitudes and continuing education. The more we can improve health knowledge and engage the community, the more we have to offer in terms of exceptional healthcare at our facility and in the lives of those we touch.

Community Outreach

Our responsibility is to provide health care with great compassion and superb service. Yet providing exceptional health care is not enough.

At Hutchinson Health we are committed to enhancing the health and well-being of area residents. In keeping with this mission we continuously support our communities by investing time, talent, energy and resources into improving community health.

We do this in a number of ways.

  • Each year, between 6% and 8% of Hutchinson Health’s expenses are considered “charity care”. This includes, but is not limited to:
    • Providing care and writing off its cost for people who are unable to pay.
    • Accepting Medicaid, which reimburses some but not all of the costs of the care we provide.
    • Paying for services that benefit the community but for which there is no reimbursement.
  • Regularly assessing the health needs of the community and planning the growth of services to meet these needs.
  • Being an “Employer of Choice,” providing good pay and benefits, and a great work environment.
  • Partnering with community organization to promote health education, awareness, wellness and healthy behavior.
  • Encouraging our employees to be active participants in their communities.

We value the support we receive from the community and are committed to making a positive difference in this place we all call home.
