The Grady Health System name is synonymous with the concept of community benefit - and has been since its founding well over 100 years ago by Henry W. Grady. Today Grady Health System offers an abundance of charitable ways to address the health care needs of Georgia communities, whether local, regional or statewide. Henry Grady would no doubt be pleased with the many ways Grady Health System addresses the complex needs of the communities it serves.
Managing nearly 600,000 patient visits each year, the majority of Grady's revenue is generated through Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement. Still, millions of dollars in indigent and charity care are provided monthly - expensive care, and Grady must shoulder these costs. In 2010, Grady Health System provided more than $220 million in indigent and charity care (including non-reimbursed dollars) and nearly $164 million in 2009.
Grady continually reaches out to the community, emphasizing wellness, prevention, and early detection. Free health-related screenings, seminars, community fairs and educational conferences are offered throughout the year. The support groups and personal resource assistance that are an essential part of health and healing are often provided for the community or uninsured individuals and their families at no charge.
Close to 1,000 Team Grady volunteers work with philanthropic businesses and organizations, graciously extending a helping hand throughout the year for patients, family members and staff.
