Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This study quantifies the value that several hospitals in a hospital system have on their local communities. Also included is an analysis of the types of value-added services and resources offered by the hospitals. The hospitals are assessed in 3 arenas: as an employer, as a major provider of healthcare services, and as a contributor to the quality of life of the region through the involvement of its employees in community services activities. The results indicate that the hospital system contributes almost $1.7 billion (or 6.6%) toward the $25 billion local economy.
