About John Fitzgibbon Memorial Hospital
Fitzgibbon Hospital was founded in 1923 and is a 501(c) 3 not-for-profit hospital licensed for 60 beds, located in Marshall in central Missouri. Our mission is to improve the health of our community. We provide care to all – regardless of their ability to pay. By law, we cannot turn anyone away from our facility. With no tax support (we are not in a hospital tax district nor does our organization receive city or county tax support of any kind), we rely on payment for the services we provide as our primary source of revenues. Fitzgibbon Hospital is designated by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) as a “sole community” hospital, meaning there is not another acute care hospital within 30 miles, as well as “disproportionate share” meaning that our hospital’s revenues are comprised disproportionately of payments from Medicare and Medicaid, rather than from commercial insurance. We also are a HRSA-designated Health Professional Shortage Area, so providing access to care for the people in our area and attracting physicians to relocate to our community can be a challenge. Truly Fitzgibbon serves as an essential “safety net” health care provider for Saline County and the surrounding area. An added facet impacting our revenues is the economic pressures due to the requirements of the Affordable Care Act. Smaller hospitals like ours – without a larger system to support us – face additional pressure. In FY2015 Fitzgibbon Hospital and its outreach clinics provided $4.83 million in uncompensated health care (Cost Report Worksheet S-10, FY15). This figure represents the shortfall between the cost of providing care and the payments received by the government and covered patients. It also represents the cost of care provided to patients who are either unwilling or unable to pay. As part of Fitzgibbon's mission of caring for its community, we do offer patients who qualify the opportunity to apply for financial assistance, including forgiveness of a portion of the amounts they owe.
