Community Care Fund

What is it?

The Community Care Fund is a resource that helps individuals in our community who have significant medical needs that are made more challenging by difficult socioeconomic situations. Many cannot afford the basics they need to move to improved health, such as medications or diabetic supplies.

Who does it serve?

The Community Care Fund mostly serves patients who have been discharged from the hospital and have ongoing medical needs and limited or no resources. Many of these patients are referred to United Regional’s Transition Clinic, where professionals work to match their needs with appropriate resources. In 2021, the Transition Clinic served 3,500 individuals, many who received help from the Community Care Fund.

What does it provide?

Why is it needed?

Federal regulations prohibit use of hospital funds for the provision of these supplies and services to Medicare, Medicaid, and Tricare patients. Therefore, donations made to the Community Care Fund help ensure these supplies and services are available to ALL patients in need.
