340B Program

Redlands Community Hospital

Good Stewardship of the 340B Program

RCH 340B by the Numbers

About Us:

Redlands Community Hospital (RCH) is an independent, not-for-profit, stand-alone hospital in the east San Bernardino Valley of Southern California. Founded in 1904, the hospital offers acute care, diagnostic testing, outpatient and home healthcare services. The hospital operates two community-based Family Clinics for low-income and underinsured patients in the community. Our Emergency Department, Redlands Family Clinic, Yucaipa Family Clinic, Perinatal Services Program, and several other departments throughout the hospital are involved in offering and providing a variety of community services and charity care. Individuals throughout our large service area depend on us for 24-hour emergency care, the professional delivery of healthcare and community outreach programs.

RCH is eligible to participate in the 340B Program because our hospital provides care to a disproportionate share of low-income Medicare and Medi-Cal (Medicaid) patients.

Benefits of the 340B Program

Savings realized through participation in the 340B Program supports Redlands Community Hospital’s ability to provide services to under-and-uninsured patients, regardless of their ability to pay, and to address health care needs in our community.

RCH provides a variety of services to help care for the most vulnerable in our community. Among these services are:

  • Family Clinics provide health care services for at-risk and underinsured, underserved children and adults;
  • Perinatal Service Program provides early prenatal care for low-income, underinsured women and teens and provides lactation education and mother/infant bonding support, as well as education for pregnant mothers with diabetes;
  • Community Case Management Program addresses the needs for at-risk, underinsured and complex healthcare issues as well as education on diseases management and community resources;
  • Multiple community benefit activities and programs of the hospital; and
  • Community resources that address the problem of low-income and uninsured individuals’ inability to access health resources through a variety of agencies.

Impact of Scaling Back the 340b Program

Scaling back the 340b Program would threaten Redlands Community Hospital’s capacity to offer the services described above to our patients.
