Tanner Health System has a proud history of caring for those in need.
With the help of seed money from by local businessman C.M. Tanner — along with pennies, nickels and dimes collected by area school children, livestock donated from local farms and fundraising drives throughout local civic clubs and organizations — our community came together in 1949 to build a hospital. People gave what they could to ensure that every neighbor – regardless of economic status – would have access to the medical care they needed.
Today, that tradition continues and is reflected in our provision of care to all who need it, regardless of their ability to pay.
As a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) healthcare organization, we are proud to reinvest revenues to expand access to healthcare services through free screenings and health education, and to provide care to all our neighbors.
During the last fiscal year, Tanner provided $61.2 million in gross charges for charity care, all while receiving no local tax dollars or subsidies.
Because we recognize illness is not limited to the employed or those who have health insurance, our hospitals also offer generous financial assistance policies to help those who do not qualify for charity care.
