From community walking trails to annual fitness challenges, from a parenting support network to a simple pill box that organizes medications, BJC community benefit offerings have an impact each and every day. Hospitals have grown from places where people seek medical care to also become partners in daily health and wellness, offering meaningful outreach programs that inform, support and sustain healthy living. Whether in St. Louis or mid-Missouri, the Metro East or St. Charles County, BJC hospitals and health service organizations are at the forefront in building stronger and healthier communities.
These wide-ranging community outreach initiatives – along with charity care and other financial assistance, education of health professionals, regional safety net services and support of community health partners – resulted in BJC community benefit contributions totaling more than $800 million in 2018.
