Here for our Community

We have a responsibility to offer access to health care services, regardless of ability to pay. Over the past five years, Gritman has provided millions of dollars in charity care to individuals in our region. Learn more about our financial assistance programs.

We also offer free, unlimited access to the Gritman Online Clinic through our partnership with Healthwise. Healthwise is a leading, nonprofit provider of easy-to-understand, evidence-based health information you and your family can trust.

Whether you’re taking care of yourself at home or preparing to visit our hospital or clinics, the Gritman Online Clinic helps you check your symptoms, learn about conditions and evaluate treatment options to make the best decision. The Gritman Online Clinic is always open and up-to-date. Content is reviewed by leading medical experts and written in a way that makes it easy to understand and take action. The information is designed to help you along your health journey, but not replace the care you receive from a licensed health professional.

Community Health Needs Assessment

As a nationally recognized, nonprofit hospital, Gritman is committed to providing exceptional care to serve the needs of our service area. We work closely with our primary care clinics to prioritize health services, staffing and technology to address the greatest needs.

The 2016 Community Health Needs Assessment identified these top areas of focus:

  1. Mental Health and Suicide
  2. Substance Abuse
  3. Access to Physicians
  4. Affordability and Accessibility
  5. Obesity and Weight Issues

We invite you to read more about current needs in our annual reports and our free Connections magazine.

Advocating for Health and Wellness

Our commitment to the community means investing in your overall wellness. Whether it’s offering free mammograms through the Bosom Buddies program or helping cancer patients through the Light a Candle program, we want to be your partner in leading the healthiest life possible.

Gritman offers numerous classes and outreach events, including free and low-cost fitness classes, wellness screenings, blood pressure clinics, smoking cessation classes and support groups for caregivers. If you want to be a part of making these programs possible, visit our giving page and make a tax-deductible gift to the Gritman Foundation.
