UChicago Medicine provides an annual report of benefits and services we offer to improve health in our South Side communities.
In fiscal year 2019, we provided $519.5 million in benefits and services to the community — a nine percent increase over the previous year. This investment included supporting patients who rely on Medicare or Medicaid or who were unable to pay for care. It also included teaching and training tomorrow’s health care professionals, funding medical research and donating to community groups for health and wellness initiatives.
