Impacting our Community

Tanner Health System is a nonprofit healthcare provider. Our mission is to improve the health of the communities we serve — not to generate revenues for shareholders.

Indigent and Charity Care

 

For our neighbors who struggle to make ends meet as is, illness and injury can be especially catastrophic.

Indigent and charity care exemplifies our promise to never turn our backs on those who need us. It is one of the most fundamental ways we give back to the communities that have supported Tanner.

We provide indigent and charity care for individuals in our communities who could not otherwise afford care. Illnesses and injuries do not only befall the employed and well-insured. They also affect those for whom health has been too fragile to work, those who cannot find employment and those who can barely scratch together money for rent and utilities.

Being there for everyone in our community also means working with patients to collect what payment for services we can, while being sensitive to each family’s unique hardships.

Here, detail the ways we serve all our neighbors. The support of our community allows us to pursue this mission, to be there for everyone regardless of ability to pay.

If you’re looking for help affording your care, if you are uninsured or otherwise need financial assistance, our Patient Financial Assistant team is ready to help.
