Community Benefit and Outreach
Providing health care for our region is about more than healing the sick. It is also about creating a better and healthier life for the people we serve. One important way we do this is through community benefit investments that reach out beyond the walls of care settings to touch lives in the places where relief, comfort and care are needed.

Creating a Healthier Community
Through programs and donations, charity care and more, Kadlec provided $54.1 million in community benefit in 2016, including $6.4 million in free and low-cost care for patients in need.
We invite you to take a look at some of the ways Kadlec offers health and hope to this region through programs such as Kadlec Academy, Safe Kids Saturday, Healthy Ages and our malnutrition assistance program with Meals on Wheels.
Caring for our community is not only about saving lives, it is about impacting lives for good health. It’s not only about ensuring that we have the finest physicians, cutting-edge technology and expanding medical services, it’s also about creating a healthier community.
That’s why at Kadlec Regional Medical Center, we not only bring all our best to providing health care, we also bring all our best when serving our community. Through our sponsorship of important programs, our financial support of community projects, our commitment to providing care for people financially unable to pay and our development of new services, we work with many others to ensure a healthier future for everyone.
