    Charitable Care

    Many patients have no health care coverage or can't afford the patient responsibility portion fo the bill. For these individuals, a determiniation of medical indigence is calculated based on federal poverty guidelines. As a result of this determination, the patients bill may be covered up to 100% by the United Way funds and other donated care funds.

    Today, unprecedented numbers of individuals face enormous challenges in meeting their medical bills. Many people even delay getting necessary medical care. The needy patients at Hitchcock are able to get back on their feet, and achieve their levels of independance and self-sufficiency because of the United Way and other donors. Each patient has the opportunity to lead an independant and productive life.

    Charitable Tax Deductions

    Hitchcock Rehabilitation Center is a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization and, therefore, and contributions to it are tax deductible less the value of the premiums. A real tax advantage may be gained by donating appreciated property such as stock. You can claim a deduction for the full fair market value of the gift and thus avoid paying tax on the stock's appreciation. However, check with your tax advisor to be sure this will be the best strategy for your particular circumstance.

    Volunteer Program - Established 1950

    Volunteers have formed the basis for the Hitchcock Spirit since 1950, and before any therapy services were provided in Aiken, volunteers began what is now the Hitchcock Rehabilitation Center. These creative and dedicated volunteers transported handicapped children to Columbia, and Duke University so they could receive essential medicinal and rehabilitation services.
    Today volunteers continue to be an integral component of the Hithcock Mission.
