Financial Assistance Program

Stewart Memorial Community Hospital is committed to providing necessary hospital care and treatment to all patients regardless of their ability to pay. Any patient who has received services and who falls below certain income and asset limits may be eligible for hospital care free of charge, or at a reduction of our established charges.

The Hospital uses the poverty income guidelines issued by the Community Service Administration as a basis for eligibility criteria for discounted care. These guidelines are adjusted annually based on increases in the consumer price index. Support to grant financial assistance must be fully documented in our files.
