Estimated Hospital Costs
Prospective patients of Regional West Medical Center are welcome to request a free, confidential cost estimate prior to a medical service or procedure. Estimates are based on hospital charges for anticipated routine care and recovery. Based on a patient's medical condition, unknown circumstances or complications, final diagnosis, and recommended treatment ordered by your physician, the final hospital bill may vary from the initial estimate. Your hospital bill covers services provided by the hospital such as: room, nursing care, meals, housekeeping, and linen. It may also include services ordered by your physician, including X-rays, laboratory tests, medical supplies, and oxygen.
The bill does not include charges for your personal physician, surgeon, anesthesiologist, pathologist, emergency physician, radiologist, or other specialists. You will receive separate bills from these physicians.
