Cleveland-area nonprofit hospitals say they write off about 2% of revenues on charity care
The Cleveland Clinic, University Hospitals, and the Sisters of Charity Health System together spent just over 2%—or $157.9 million on $7.2 billion in operating revenues—providing free patient care in 2007, according to their most recent federal filings and data requested by the Cleveland Plain Dealer. In addition to their charity care expenses, the hospitals also say they lost millions more because people did not pay their bills.
