Sullivan County Community Hospital is a county-owned, not-for-profit hospital located in Sullivan, Indiana. Despite SCCH’s status as a county-owned facility, no tax dollars are used to subsidize its operations or maintenance. The hospital’s not-for-profit status ensures that all financial resources remaining after expenses are legally committed to upgrading technology, patient services and the facility as a whole.
BOARD OF TRUSTEES
SCCH is governed by a five-member Board of Trustees, appointed to four-year terms by the Sullivan County Commissioners in accordance with Indiana Code. They represent a broad spectrum of business and community leaders in the Sullivan County area.
The Board of Trustees determines hospital policy and provides direction and counsel on strategic issues such as management, planning and development. They are responsible for hospital compliance with applicable legal requirements, the maintenance of professional and ethical standards of healthcare services, the appropriate financial management of SCCH, and the selection and appointment of a qualified medical staff.
Board meetings are scheduled monthly, usually the third Tuesday of each month, and are open to the public. Board members may be contacted through the Sullivan County Community Hospital administrative office at (812) 268-4311, ext. 2372.
Henry Bobe Benevolent Fund
Henry, a beloved and dedicated SCCH Board Trustee, dedicated himself to needs of others in the community and fully supported the employees of SCCH. In honor of his contributions, SCCH created the Henry Bobe Benevolent Fund.
To be eligible for financial assistance, an employee must have satisfactorily completed an introductory period of employment. Requests are reviewed by Human Resources and the Henry Bobe Benevolent Fund Committee. Assistance may not exceed $599 per request and determinations will be based on need, nature of request, and available funds. All requests will be kept confidential. Financial assistance will be paid directly to the appropriate entity (i.e. utility company, landlord, medical provider, etc.) rather than to the employee.
Employees assisted through Henry Bobe Benevolent Fund are not required to repay the funds they receive. However, once their circumstances have improved, recipients may elect to contribute to the Henry Bobe Benevolent Fund so that others may also receive help in their time of need.
The Henry Bobe Benevolent Fund is funded entirely through special events sponsored by Sullivan County Community Hospital and individual contributions. The fund is held in trust within the structure of the SCCH Foundation. Individual contributions to the fund through the Sullivan County Community Hospital Foundation are tax-deductible. Please consider making a donation in Henry’s memory.
