Ways to Give

No matter how you give to the Johnston Health Foundation, you impact the health and well-being of your Johnston County community. Find out how—and why—to help.

Why Give?

Reimbursements from state, federal, and private health insurance plans are shrinking—even as health care costs are increasing. Fifty-five percent of patients at our Clayton hospital and 70% of patients at our Smithfield hospital have government-funded insurance. Those plans’ reimbursement rates are lower than commercial insurance providers’ reimbursements.

More than 13% of Johnston County adults—about 25,000 people—have no insurance at all.

For such reasons, Johnston Health provides $200,000 of uncompensated care each day, which is over $72 million each year. Your gift helps Johnston Health continue to provide lifesaving care, regardless of patients’ ability to pay.
