The Incredible Impact of Hospitals in Our Communities

People visit hospitals to receive care for injuries or diseases or undergo needed medical procedures and surgeries. Hospitals are open 24/7 every day of the year to provide essential and specialized health services to our communities.

Of course, a hospital’s reach and impact extend beyond its walls and into the surrounding neighborhoods and communities. Each community may have different needs, and those needs can change.

Whether providing transportation for patients to and from an appointment or hospital stay, offering education and employment opportunities, providing affordable housing — and so much more — all hospitals and health systems provide innumerable benefits to their communities.

AHA’s Telling the Hospital Story webpage highlights hospitals and health systems that are benefiting communities. Patients and communities rely on the wide range of critical health care services that only hospitals and health systems can provide, including 24/7 emergency and other higher-acuity care. Hospitals also work with their community partners to develop and deploy programs that advance health and wellness.

Hospitals and health care workers have stood strong for their communities, and they have a vital role in our society to keep communities healthy.
The AHA wants to help elevate the impactful work you do in your community. Please consider submitting examples of the many ways your hospital/health system benefits your community via this form.
