Report: Supporting a Healthy Commonwealth, An Inside Look at Pennsylvania Hospitals
HAP Center for Health Policy Research
Hospitals in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania provide critical services to their citizens every day, working with and within their communities to serve their diverse and changing needs. This work includes cutting-edge research, population health programs, and delivering safe high-quality care within their walls and out in the community.
Pennsylvania does not have a public hospital system, therefore hospitals throughout the state are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They see all patients, regardless of their ability to pay, and often serve as financial assistance partners to help patients pay for care.
While providing these critical services, Pennsylvania hospitals face several challenges and, as a result, are always developing innovative ways to meet the need of their patients. This report tells the story of these hospitals and how they fulfill their mission.
