Community Benefit

How UMMC is Making a Difference

To be officially recognized as a community benefit under current Maryland law, an activity must be intended to address community needs and priorities primarily through disease prevention and improvement of health status, including:

  • Health services provided to vulnerable or underserved populations
  • Financial or in-kind support of public health programs
  • Donations of funds, property, or other resources that contribute to a community priority
  • Health care cost containment activities
  • Health education, screening, and prevention services

Annually, UMMC submits a report to the state of Maryland measuring the community benefit provided. These reports summarize the broad range of health and support activities we offer to meet the needs of the community.

In summary for Fiscal Year 2009:

  • 2,280,921 staff hours for an equivalent of 1,096 FTEs were provided for community benefit
  • $152,667,507 spent (net community benefit)
