Welcome to the Community Benefits Reporting website for Johns Hopkins Medicine.  Reports submitted through this website will be used to compile the Annual Community Benefits Report for the Johns Hopkins Medicine hospitals (JHH, JHACH, HCGH).

In Maryland, state regulations require each nonprofit hospital to submit an annual Community Benefits Report to the Health Services Cost Review Commission.  Please note that data contained in this year's report will also be utilized by each hospital to comply with federal regulations of the IRS Form 990. The report will contain information that documents the cost and types of community benefit programs that are provided.

A community benefit is defined as an activity that is intended to address community needs and priorities primarily through addressing social determinants of health, disease prevention, improvement of health status and quality of life, including:

  • health services provided to vulnerable or underserved populations
  • financial or in-kind support of public health programs
  • donations of funds, property, or other resources that contribute to a community priority
  • health care cost containment activities
  • health education, screening and prevention services

Community benefit includes activities carried out for the express purpose of improving community health. They typically extend beyond patient care activities.

The final Community Benefits Report will be made available to the public and utilized internally to promote community benefit activities. In order for the hospital to prepare its FY2018 Community Benefits Report and comply with state/federal regulations, specific information about community programs and services within the hospital needs to be obtained.

This site contains a Report Form that will be used by hospital departments to input data on affiliated community programs or activities.
