Eskenazi Health and the new Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Hospital is different from other hospitals. As a public hospital, we support the underserved by providing a full array of high-quality acute Level I trauma and regional burn care as well as primary preventive care in low-cost neighborhood clinics.
Eskenazi Health provided roughly $150 million in free care in 2008 and receives a mere 5.4% of its $486.4 million budget from property taxes.
Eskenazi Health provides necessary care to everyone in the county – regardless of their ability to pay. Beyond this responsibility, however, Eskenazi Health provides no- and low-cost educational and preventive health services to disadvantaged Central Indiana Hoosiers in an effort to lower costs associated with this population’s care.
To put it simply, Eskenazi Health provides more inpatient care to the uninsured than all other health systems in Central Indiana combined, and its role will continue in the new Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Hospital. We need your help to continue this life sustaining safety net for our community.
