What is a Not-For-Profit?
Being a not-for-profit organization makes PAMF fundamentally different from investor-owned health care systems. We have no shareholders or corporate officers to answer to. Our sole purpose is to enhance the health of people in our communities. Any profit remaining after we cover salaries, employee benefits and other expenses is reinvested to enhance patient care through improved facilities and equipment, health education and medical research.
We believe this community-based, not-for-profit approach to health care best serves our patients and our communities. For one thing, it's better for patients. We offer a full spectrum of services that communities need but are seldom profitable—such as medical research, care for the chronically ill, and services for the poor and uninsured.
