What does "independent, non-profit, community hospital" mean?
Union Hospital is a locally owned and managed community hospital. Union Hospital belongs to the community it serves. A board of trustees consisting of volunteer leaders from throughout Tuscarawas County helps determine policies and provides fiscal oversight.
While for-profit hospitals answer to private investors - generating as much revenue as possible to pay dividends - any profits generated by Union Hospital are reinvested into the hospital to purchase new equipment and expand services.
