Access to Health Care

Holland Hospital's mission focus is access to care. This involves meeting unmet needs by facilitating and providing care to those who otherwise may not be able to access care.

Each year the value of all our community benefit contributions is reported to the Michigan Health and Hospital Association (MHA), which tallies the contributions statewide. Last year, Holland Hospital’s unreimbursed care, charity care, bad debt and other community benefits totaled $32.8 million.

Holland Community Health Center

The Community Health Center (CHC), an outreach service of Holland Hospital, provides health care services for all who enter its doors regardless of age, language barriers, health insurance, or ability to pay. In addition, the center acquires and distributes free medications for patients who cannot afford them. The CHC currently serves more than 5,000 patients. The center treats anyone regardless of language, cultural barriers or ability to pay.

School Nursing Program

Holland Hospital’s School Nurse Program began in 1998 with one Registered Nurse serving two Holland Public Schools. Over the last 15 years, this program has grown to include schools in the districts of Holland Public, West Ottawa, Hamilton, Holland Christian and Fennville. The school nursing program is supported by Holland Hospital and its employees, along with other financial support from the community and the school districts. Holland Hospital employees contribute more than $60,000 annually.

Faith Community Nurse

Holland Hospital provides a Faith Community Nurse at the Holland Rescue Mission. The nurse collaborates with local resources to provide free health clinics, immunization and TB clinics along with dental clinics for the clients at the Holland Rescue Mission. A large portion of the nurse's time is spent helping clients navigate the complex health care system to access the care they need. Heath education is also a large part of the nurse's role. Health education, including wellness and prevention plus information on conditions and diseases, is provided both in class settings and on an individual bases.
