Sequoia Hospital Provided More Than $29 Million in Patient Financial Assistance and Community Benefit Programs in FY22

Posted in:

Redwood City, Calif. (October 12, 2022) – Sequoia Hospital provided more than $29 million during fiscal year 2022 (FY22) in patient financial assistance for those unable to afford medical necessary care, unreimbursed costs of Medi-Cal, community health improvement services, and other community benefits.

Sequoia Hospital takes a comprehensive approach to improving community health, including not only inpatient, outpatient and emergency medical care, but also a range of prevention and health improvement programs delivered alongside community partners, financial grants to non-profit organizations, and investments in efforts that address the social determinants of health.

Dignity Health provides emergency medical care and medically necessary care in our hospital facilities to all patients, without regard to a patient’s financial ability to pay. The hospital has a financial assistance policy that describes the assistance provided to patients for whom it would be a financial hardship to fully pay the expected out-of-pocket expenses for such care, and who meet the eligibility criteria. The financial assistance policy, a plain language summary and related materials are available in multiple languages on the hospital’s website.

More information about Dignity Health’s financial assistance policy at Sequoia Hospital, including who is eligible to receive assistance, can be found here, and general information about the hospital can be found here.
