ABSTRACT
The article suggests that hospitals need a consistent way to demonstrate why they deserve a tax benefit, with regulators threatening tax-exempt status. The purpose of not-for-profit hospitals has become synonymous in the public's mind with charity care. According to Sister Carol Keehan of the Catholic Health Association of the U.S., hospitals use part of their operating income to maintain many programs that will never support themselves, from palliative care to trauma, or to bring new technology to the community.
