Hospital Losing Money

Please Take Note: The information provided does not constitute legal or tax advice. The material is provided for informational/educational purposes only. Please consult with counsel regarding your organization's particular circumstances.

Question: Our entire hospital loses money. Can we count the entire hospital as a subsidized service?

Recommendation: We recommend that individual programs/service lines within a hospital be assessed to see if they meet the community benefit definition of Subsidized Health Services, not the overall institution.
