IU Health invests $509M to improve the health of the community

0

In 2013, nearly half a million patients in Indiana received free or reduced-cost care from Indiana University Health. Beyond the $308 million provided in charity care, IU Health also brought health care into the community by investing nearly $32 million in community health initiatives, reaching nearly a million people through health screenings and health education programs.

Throughout the year, IU Health Saxony Hospital supported many local organizations including the Southeastern Program of Recreational Team Sports (S.P.O.R.T.S.) in Fishers. The hospital provided hundreds of first-aid kits for the organization’s youth sports teams.

“IU Health Saxony provided much-needed firstaid kits for all of the teams in our programs. With over 12,000 participants, we can’t begin to count the number of scrapes, bruises and twisted ankles,” stated Lynda Carlino, executive director of S.P.O.R.T.S. “For each coach to have immediate access to a well-equipped first aid kit is critical. It provides a sense of comfort to the child and a sense of well-being to the coach and parent.”

IU Health also invested in the wellbeing of its communities by funding education and training to more than 17,000 health professionals and providing $72 million to support research initiatives at the IU School of Medicine.

2013 IU Health Saxony community benefit highlights include:

● During the Saxony Farmers’ Market in Fishers, nutrition experts from IU Health Saxony shared healthy eating tips and demonstrations with more than 150 community members.

● IU Health Saxony Hospital financially supported Girls on the Run of Hamilton County, an organization for young girls that focuses on character development, positive reinforcement and self-esteem.

● During the 2013 Day of Service, IU Health Saxony associates installed five fitness stations on the hospital’s community walking trail to promote exercise and physical fitness.
