What does not-for-profit mean?

Rideout Health is a not-for-profit organization. We believe that not-for-profit healthcare is in the best interest of the community. Our not-for-profit designation keeps focus on the community, not on a group of shareholders who want to make a profit on our services. This makes our mission - to provide compassionate and superior healthcare to everyone in our community and region - a real commitment.

Rideout Health provides the full range of healthcare services to our community. It is this full array of services that's enables our hospitals to provide complete healthcare for everyone, for the benefit of the entire community, including those who cannot afford to pay.

At not-for-profit, community-based hospitals, profitable services indirectly fund unprofitable - yet necessary - services like trauma and women's health. Investor-owned (for profit) healthcare organizations have a big financial incentive to avoid caring for uninsured and under insured patients.
