Not-for-profit hospitals average more than 11% of total expenses on benefits to their communities, according to a study sponsored by the American Hospital Association.

Beginning in 2009, the Internal Revenue Service required not-for-profit hospitals to file a Schedule H form to assess their community benefit. AHA hired Ernst & Young to collect and analyze the data from 571 not-for-profit hospitals.
