McDowell Endowment donates to McDowell Hospitals

Mission needs donations

Apparently, the outrageous rates charged by Mission for doctors visits and hospital services aren't enough, they are getting a $12,000 grant from McDowell Endowment, a charitable fund. McDowell Pediatrics will use the grant to buy equipment to work with children with behavioral health issues.

As I write my $150 check for seeing a PA for 5 minutes for an ear infection, I'm having a bit of a hard time with this personally.

This is an outrage! This hospital is a for profit business! They should not be receiving donations like this. They make enough money! That money should go to a nonprofit business! This is like donating equipment to Duke Power!

Why are medical rates outrageous? You are actually picking up the slack for the uninsured and non-payers. They say thank you.

Guess that status depends on who "profits". Ronald Paulus, the CEO is quoted in this article as taking a 27% cut to his $1 million dollar salary. Even at $730,000, that's some profit for him at least. And then of course the benefits package..

No argument there people are making mad money. Just stating that in business terms they are a non profit hospital.
Universal health care

Your bill reflects the cost of uninsured individuals. That's how charges are made. People fight universal health care coverage then complain about their medical bills.
