Our Mission in Action
Fairfield Memorial Hospital provided $28.2 million dollars of charity care, uncompensated care, and community benefits for those in Wayne County and the surrounding communities in 2009.
We are committed to making the citizens of our community healthy – from individuals and families to schools and neighborhoods. We are committed to meeting the healthcare needs of all residents, regardless of their ability to pay. We strive to be highly efficient and good stewards of our resources while working to improve the health and healthcare in the communities we serve.
It’s more than healthcare services at our hospital. It’s also the people helped by our outreach programs and other care that make our community a healthy place to live.
