New Hospital Doesn’t Mean More Expense to SVH Patients
Many of our patients have been asking: Will the cost of medical services increase because of St. Vincent Health’s new hospital building?
The short answer? No. Our priority is to continue providing healthcare that is attainable for all patients.
The question is understandable. Normally, with other types of businesses when there is a new building or a remodel, consumers see prices rise to help cover that cost.
This is not the case with the new St. Vincent Health state-of-the-art hospital. Patient co-pays, co-insurance, deductibles and charges do not fluctuate based on our expenses. Additionally, the new space allows for new services like surgical services, pain management clinic, and more. This increase in services sustain the new facility financially, and not an increase in charges to patients.
