Jefferson County and the UAB Health System (UABHS) are working together to maximize the impact of the indigent care fund while additional data is collected and studied to establish a long term, sustainable financial arrangement that is best for Cooper Green patients, employees, and the community. 

This initial, two-year phase will allow both the County and UAB Medicine to get a better idea of costs and patient outcomes that can be achieved under a large health system with extensive expertise and buying power.

Getting a more accurate picture will allow the County and UABHS to move to the next phase with more understanding about how to maximize indigent care funds for the benefit of Cooper Green patients.
