Sunrise was also first in Siouxland to implement technology solutions such as implementing electronic medical records, piloting tele-medicine, and utilizing virtual reality in therapy services.
Current Project: Benevolent (Charity)Care Fund
In 2017 Sunrise Retirement Community provided more than $1.2 million in charity care. While residents do have to pay what they can to help cover the cost of care, there is often a period of time where their resources are depleted but they have not qualified for assistance from Medicaid. The cost of care during this time, as well as the difference between the State reimbursement (Medicaid/Title 19) and the actual cost of providing care (more than $50 per day), are unreimbursed by any source yet care is provided as charity care.
