Our Report to the Community
A part of MedStar Health’s mission is to promote the good health of residents of our communities, especially those who face barriers to quality care. As a not-for-profit, we reinvest all of our net revenues to advance our mission of caring. Each year we provide millions of dollars of uncompensated care to the uninsured and underinsured. Our healthcare professionals work to improve the health of our communities in countless ways: by hosting free screening and support groups, operating health clinics, making house calls to the elderly and educating children in schools, to name just a few. We partner with community-based initiatives to support a wide range of causes through our expertise, our dollars and our volunteer hours. Our community benefit reports are available for your review.
The Healthy Montgomery community health improvement process is a community-based effort to improve the health and well-being of Montgomery County residents that is supported by the Healthy Montgomery website. This website is a one-stop source of population-based data and information about community health and the social and environmental determinants of health, such as socio-economic status, social isolation, housing, availability of healthy foods, and air quality, in Montgomery County and healthy community in general.
