Community Benefit at Union Hospital

Union Hospital has been serving communities in west central Indiana and east central Illinois for the past 125 years. Union Health System serves 275,000 people in both urban and rural areas: Clay, Greene, Sullivan, Parke, Vermillion and Vigo Counties in Indiana along with Clark Crawford and Edgar Counties in Illinois to make up our total primary service area as it relates to community benefit. The majority of families in our service area fall significantly below the national and state median household income.

As the largest not-for-profit healthcare system located between St. Louis and Indianapolis, we are proud to be the safety net system for our community providing $22.5 million in Charity Care and an additional $27.9 million in patient bad debt for a total of $50.5 million in uncompensated care in 2016.

Our benefit to the community is far reaching. Union Health is the largest employer in Vigo County employing 2,903 people with salary and benefits totaling $195.6 million last year. In 2010 we opened the doors to our $145 million hospital addition, the single largest building project in Terre Haute history. But our commitment to our community goes far beyond the walls of the hospital. Those same 2,903 employees are not just caring for our patients, they are caring for our community. In 2016 our employees gave over 2,378.50 hours of their time volunteering.
