Frequently Asked Questions About Charitable Giving
to Union Hospital
What does "independent, non-profit community hospital" mean?
Union Hospital is a locally owned and managed community hospital. Union Hospital belongs to the community it serves. A board of trustees consisting of volunteer leaders from throughout Tuscarawas County helps determine policies and provides fiscal oversight.
While for-profit hospitals answer to private investors - generating as much revenue as possible to pay dividends - any profits generated by Union Hospital are reinvested into the hospital to purchase new equipment and expand services.
So many non-profits are asking for my help. Why is a gift to Union Hospital a sound return on investment?
Certainly, more charities are soliciting funds now than at any time in recent history. Economic challenges alone mean more people are in need of healthcare services, and when educational, cultural, and developmental organizations are added to the mix, it's difficult to know where philanthropy should be directed.
Union Hospital's value — your return on investment — lies in:
- Quality, affordable care
- Excellent customer service
- Close proximity and easy accessibility
- More than 100 years of community leadership
- Consistent growth and improvement
- Charitable mission of care to all, regardless of ability to pay
