Trios Health Publishes 2021 Community Benefit Report
July 11, 2022
Trios Health recently published its community benefit report for the 2021 year. This yearly report outlines specific ways the hospital is positively contributing to the Tri-Cities community and surrounding region and spotlights the various ways it is working to support the health and well-being of the community it calls home – an investment which has become increasingly essential in recent years.
“Our mission of Making Communities Healthier has always been a fundamental part of succeeding as a community leader in the Tri-Cities,” said Jerry Dooley, Interim Chief Executive Officer of Trios Health. “Being part of LifePoint Health, a growing diversified healthcare delivery network, allows us to continue to uphold our legacy of care and community leadership, and cultivate an environment where people choose to come for care. We accomplished this thanks in no small part to the hard work and dedication of our remarkable team of providers, employees and volunteers, and the support of those we serve.”
Trios Health’s 2021 community benefit report highlights its continued efforts to meet the growing healthcare needs of its community through welcoming new providing, expanding service lines and continually investing in its facilities and healthcare technology. For example, in 2021, Trios Health added 58 employed, affiliated and short-term providers and made more than $21.6 million in capital improvements, including the construction and opening of its new birth center on the Trios Southridge Hospital campus, investment in robotic-assisted surgical technology and smart pumps, and expansions of its urology and pain management services.
Additionally, Trios Health made a donation of more than $21.1 million in health services to those in need, demonstrating its continuous commitment to ensuring everyone has access to care, regardless of their ability to pay.
Trios Health is also devoted to creating environments where providers want to practice and employees want to work. In 2021, the hospital distributed more than $95 million in salaries, wages and benefits to more than 925 employees, and contributed more than $200,000 in professional development and tuition assistance so all its employees can have the opportunity to learn, grow and improve the care they provide their patients.
This year’s annual report also showcases several examples of how Trios Health is continually seeking ways to make a positive impact in the communities we serve, extending far beyond the physical walls of its facilities. Last year, the organization paid $13.2 million in local and state taxes, displaying its commitment to fiscal responsibility in an effort to boost the Tri-Cities economic well-being. The hospital is also honored to continue its support of local activities and organizations that contribute to making the community healthier, including the American Red Cross, Benton-Franklin County Fair and Rodeo, Boys & Girls Clubs of Benton & Franklin Counties, Chaplaincy Healthcare, Columbia Basin College, Camp Trios, Grace Clinic, MyTri 2030, TRIDEC, and United Way of Benton and Franklin Counties.
“We are proud to call the Tri-Cities our home and feel truly privileged to contribute to its well-being,” Dooley said. “We are also incredibly grateful for and inspired by the support our communities have shown us in recent years. As we consider the future of Trios Health, we are so excited to continue improving the way we serve our neighbors and communities.”
