May 31, 2023
Trios Health today published its community benefit report for the 2022 calendar year. The annual report outlines the various ways the hospital continues to invest in the health and economic vitality of the Tri-Cities as part of its mission of making communities healthier®.
“For more than 70 years, Trios Health has been proud to call Kennewick our home, and as a leader in our community, we are continually seeking ways to make a positive impact for those we serve,” said David Elgarico, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) & Market President of Trios Health. “This year’s report underscores our ongoing commitment to providing the highest quality care possible – both inside and outside our hospital walls.”
Trios’ 2022 community benefit report highlights its continued efforts to meet the growing healthcare needs of its community through welcoming new providers, expanding service lines and continually investing in its facilities and healthcare technology. For example, in 2022, Trios Health added 91 providers in family medicine, urgent and critical care, gastroenterology, neurology/spine care, OB/GYN, general surgery and orthopedics; and made nearly $10.2 million in capital improvements, including a renovation to wound care, a 3N and ICU/PCU expansion, a replacement defibrillator, pharmacy medicine management system, lab equipment replacements and information system upgrades.
Additionally, Trios Health made a donation of more than $15.6 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 2022, the hospital distributed more than $95,249,657 in salaries, wages and benefits for its approximately 920 employees, while contributing more than $176,609 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.
Last year, the organization paid $13,287,848 in local and state taxes, while also continuing its support of local activities and organizations committed to serving the region, including: Boys & Girls Club of Benton & Franklin Counties, Chaplaincy Health Care, Camp Trios, Grace Clinic, Southridge Sports and Events Complex, Senior Times Expo, Tri-Cities Women’s Expo & United Way of Benton & Franklin Counties.
“We are incredibly grateful for the continued support of our community who entrusts us with their care and for the hard work and dedication of our providers, employees and volunteers who make it all possible,” said Elgarico. “As we look ahead to the future, we remain committed to honoring our legacy while further enhancing the many ways we serve our neighbors and communities.”
