Samaritan Health Services Provides Assistance to Community Partners in Health

Samaritan awards more than $620,000 in Social Accountability grants

Corvallis – The five hospitals of Samaritan Health Services have awarded a total of $624,960 in Social Accountability grants to local service organizations, to be distributed over the next 18 months.

Social Accountability grants are awarded within Benton, Lincoln and Linn counties. Funding decisions are made by committees consisting of employees and board members at each Samaritan-affiliated hospital. Funded programs address unmet needs of underserved populations and improve overall community health.

Social Accountability grants are part of the larger Samaritan Community Benefit program, which encompasses the organization’s efforts to build healthier communities by providing direct and in-kind support for services such as health screenings, health professions education, health research and community health activities.

Community Benefit also encompasses the charity care that Samaritan provides to low-income patients. In 2016, Samaritan invested more than $133 million in community benefit activities and services.

To be eligible for funding, programs must:
* Focus on unmet needs in underserved populations
* Be collaborative, involving partnerships with other organizations
* Focus on improving the health status in the community
* Use quality indicators to measure progress and outcomes, reporting results and sharing them widely to attract more resources
* Plan for self-sufficiency, where appropriate
* Operate efficiently, ideally with an administrative overhead of 15 percent or less
