Through most of its history, Gwinnett Medical Center has funded new facilities and services from earnings and borrowings. Traditionally, uncompensated care (indigent patients, charitable cases, bad debt) has also been paid for with these monies.
However, recent changes in reimbursements for healthcare and the rising cost of uncompensated care have dramatically impacted the ability of Gwinnett Medical Center to meet growing demands.
