Not-for-profit hospitals are required to file a report annually with the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) on the activities undertaken to address community needs within their mission and financial capacity. In addition, they are required to assign and report the economic value of community benefits they provide.
The Community Benefit Report is one way non-for-profit hospitals demonstrate the tangible benefits that they provide to their communities.
Rady Children’s Hospital views its community and services through a health equity lens and strives to create a welcoming and safe space for staff, patients and families. To further this goal, the hospital has formed a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Council and hired a Chief Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Officer. Rady Children’s aims to be a leader and exemplar in health equity and access to healthcare, with all programs reflecting these values.
