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.
