Virginia’s hospitals and health systems provided $2.6 billion in community benefit and other types of community support in the Commonwealth in 2012 according to the sixth annual statewide report released by the Virginia Hospital & Healthcare Association. The amount of community benefit provided by Virginia’s tax-exempt hospitals exceeded the value of the tax exemptions they receive by more than $583 million.

The data in this report is based on hospital costs, not charges, and includes all acute-care and certain specialty hospitals in the state. “Community benefit” was defined using the Internal Revenue Service definition for Schedule H of Form 990. For Virginia this represents:

  • Charity Care: $600 million

  • Medicaid Shortfall: $339 million

  • Subsidized Health Services: $104 million

  • Community Benefit Programs and Services: $348 million

In addition to the community benefit and economic impact of Virginia’s hospitals and health systems, other measures of the impact hospitals had on their communities in 2012 include:

  • 3,604,724 million emergency department visits

  • 795,184 inpatient admissions

  • 2,043,368 outpatient visits

  •  75,896 babies delivered
