The unemployment rate is the biggest driver of charity care, said Diana Gernhart, associate hospital director, finance, for OHSU Healthcare. Companies are also increasingly asking workers to shoulder a bigger load of health care costs. The result is that more low-income workers need help.
"We know demand will continue to rise and the payer mix will continue to shift," Gernhart said.
Gernhart said population increases could account for the larger number of patients, along with the new emergency room for children.

One early indicator at OHSU has CFO Diana Gernhart particularly concerned. The number of fi nancial assistance applications the hospital has approved for uninsured patients who have already received care jumped 40% between July and October of 2008. From 2003-2008, OHSU's uncompensated care fi gure went from $36 million to $89 million.
In December, OHSU announced an unspecifi ed amount of layoffs and instituted a hiring and salary freeze in part because of the increasing charity care on their books. "Folks are needing more assistance," Gernhart says.
