Nonprofit Status

Parkview Medical Center was founded in 1923 and offers acute healthcare and behavioral health specialty services. The Medical Center was incorporated as a Colorado nonprofit corporation in 1983 for the purpose of conducting the day-to-day operations of the hospital facilities. Parkview Medical Center receives tax-exempt status pursuant to section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code and public charity status pursuant to section 509 (a) (1). A nonprofit organization is exempt from income tax and property tax for the activities that relate to the reason they have been given that status. Parkview, on the other hand, provides healthcare to everyone that presents at our facility regardless of ability to pay. For any activity outside the scope of Parkview’s exemption, we pay income tax and property tax. Parkview is one of the largest property tax payers in the city, as we pay property tax on all our medical office buildings.

Charity Care

Giving to Those in Need

Parkview Medical Center is a trusted place for healthcare. The medical center provides a significant amount of uncompensated care below cost and at no cost to patients in need. Parkview provided $33,255,023 in charity care for fiscal year ending June 30, 2015. In order to help those in need, Parkview also has a discount policy that applies to the poor, uninsured and under-insured. In determining the discount, the medical center considers the availability of health insurance, family income, and other coverage options. Our credit department works with individuals to find solutions that work for patients and their families. We believe people are accountable and need to be responsible for their actions and contribute to their care and well-being. We also understand the need for charity care and the place it holds in our mission.
