Report highlights hospital’s broad impact on Person County in 2019
(Roxboro, North Carolina – JULY 9, 2020) – Person Memorial Hospital today published its annual community benefit report for the 2019 calendar year. The annual report showcases the broad scope of the hospital’s contributions to Person County and illustrates the many ways the organization invests in the region’s physical and economic health.
“Our mission of Making Communities Healthier is deeply rooted in all that we do,” says David Ziolkowski, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Person Memorial Hospital. “We are proud to contribute to the health and vitality of our community by providing quality care close to home and creating places where people choose to come for healthcare, physicians want to practice and employees want to work.”
Person Memorial Hospital’s 2019 report highlights the organization’s continued commitment to providing high quality healthcare through the recruitment of highly skilled and trained providers to practice in the community, as well as ongoing investments in new technology and facility improvements to ensure that the evolving healthcare needs of the community are being met. In 2019 alone, PMH added 41 providers; and made more than $300,000 in capital improvements. Additionally, with the fundamental belief that everyone deserves high quality care regardless of their ability to pay, the hospital donated more than $16.2 million in health services to those in need.
Person Memorial Hospital is dedicated to ensuring that its facilities are places where the contributions and talents of its providers and employees are recognized and valued. To that end, the hospital distributed more than $17.5 million in salaries, wages and benefits for its approximately 270 employees. The hospital also provided more than $18,805 in professional development and tuition assistance to enable its staff to continue to grow in expertise and experience and enhance the level of care available to the community.
The positive impact of PMH reaches beyond hospital walls and into the community in a number of key ways, as reflected on this year’s report. The organization’s commitment to fiscal responsibility and the economic well-being of the community is demonstrated by the more than $2.1 million it paid in local and state taxes, as well as its support for a number of local activities and organizations, including National Night Out, Person County Health Department, Person County Schools, Personality, Piedmont Community College, Rotary Club, Roxboro Chamber of Commerce and United Way.
“We are so proud to be a part of this wonderful community, and we are incredibly grateful that our neighbors trust us with their healthcare needs,” said Ziolkowski. “We are committed to further enhancing the many ways we serve and care for Person County and look forward to continuing our legacy of providing high quality care long into the future.”
