Community Benefits

Dedicated to Helping People

St. Elizabeth Healthcare has invested in our community for generations. St. Elizabeth believes that reaching out to help the underprivileged and improving the overall health of the community is the foundation of its mission to provide comprehensive and compassionate care to our neighborhood and our families. It is because of this belief that the Community Benefits Program helps others have access to St. Elizabeth’s resources and services. St. Elizabeth intends to always balance financial viability with compassionate care, staying true to its non-profit roots.

St. Elizabeth is sponsored by the Diocese of Covington and contributed more than $108 million toward Community Benefits Programs and Uncompensated Care in 2020.
