Through most of its history, Northside Hospital Gwinnett has funded new facilities and services from earnings and borrowings. Traditionally, uncompensated care (indigent patients, charitable cases, bad debt) has also been paid for with these monies.
However, recent changes in reimbursement for healthcare and the rising cost of uncompensated care have dramatically impacted the ability of Northside Hospital Gwinnett to meet growing demands.
To help ensure that Northside Hospital Gwinnett can continue to provide the best possible healthcare to our community, philanthropy is essential. Every single dollar generated through your donations goes directly to the bottom line, enabling us to fund projects much more quickly. Through their support, the GMC Foundation has raised more than $40 million in funding to support a variety of initiatives, such as the Strickland Heart Center, the Circelli Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, the Concussion Institute, the Gwinnett Breast Center, Mason Pediatrics and the Graduate Medical Education program, just to name a few.
