UMH provided almost 11 million dollars in charity care in 2013. The hospital provides care to patients who meet criteria under our charity care policy without charge or at discounted rates. A half-cent sales tax revenue is distributed to Uvalde County and designated for healthcare expenditures. The sales tax revenue is split among healthcare entities including the hospital. Seventy- five percent of this revenue is allocated to UMH and covers less than 12 percent of the hospital's annual charity care. This being the case, the hospital relies heavily on the support of our generous donors.
