Hospital Awarded Grant
Kings Mountain Hospital has
been awarded a $6,127 grant
from the Duke Endowment.
The Duke Endowment award-
ed over $3 million in operating
grants to 216 hospitals and child
care institutions in North and
According to Ashley H. Gale,
Jr., director of the Endowment’s
Hospital and Child Care Divi-
"sions, the recent grants “are an-
nual awards to help cover costs
of indigent care and data-
gathering services in hospitals,
and to defray operating expenses
in childcare institutions. This
year’s contribution represents an
increase of more than 9 percent
over last year’s grants for the
When James Buchanan Duke
established the Duke Endow-
ment in 1924, he directed that all
. qualifying nonprofit hospitals in
the two Carolinas receive one
dollar per day for each day of
free care given to charity pa-
tients. The number of “free bed”
days fell dramatically with the
advent of Medicare Medicaid
programs, but are now on the in-
Hospitals reporting to the En-
dowment indicated that percen-
tages of “free days” rose from
about 15 percent in 1982 to
about 16.5 percent in 1983.
“What we're seeing,” said
Gale, “is a continuing rise in the
cost of health care and a conti-
nuing decline in resources to
meet those costs. Our ‘dollar-a-
day’ used to be a fairly substan-
tial contribution to the cost of a
day’s.care for the poor; now it is
almost token assistance in trying
to close the gap.
“We’re continuing to work in
other ways, however, to help
close that gap; namely by
assisting in efforts aimed at cost-
cutting and improved efficiency.
Of the total $3 million, about $2
million is for hospitals. Approx-
imately $1.5 million of this goes
to the indigent care program,
and the remainder supports the
data-gathering effort. Two na-
tional services, Hospital Ad-
ministrative Services (HAS) and
Professional Activity Study
(PAS), collect, compare, and
distribute statistics which in-
dicate levels of efficiency as well
as areas needing improvement.
All participating hospitals
receive data on their individual
In addition to the hospital
grants, 40 child-care institutions
in North and South Carolina
received $1,059,500 for general
operating purposes. The 40 in-
stitutions have a combined
capacity to care for 2,449
children. In 1982, the average
number of children in care was
2,249; in 1983, the number rose
slightly to 2,257.
“It should be noted,” said
Gale, “that all of these grants are
part of an annual program of
support. Many of the recipients
have also received other funds
during the year for construction
or special programs.”
