St. Jude Hospital would like to notify the public that starting on November 1st, 2023, there will be an increase in the required deposit amount for accessing medical services.
This decision has been made to ensure that we can continue to provide high-quality services and maintain adequate cash flow.
Although the initial deposit amount will increase, the overall price for all services will remain unchanged.
Ms. Lydia Atkins, CEO of the St. Jude Hospital, expressed the hospital’s dedication to serving the people of the South despite facing numerous challenges at the George Odlum Stadium for the past 14 years.
“The hospital eagerly anticipates having its own facility to provide patients with greater comfort while receiving care. However, achieving this goal requires financial decisions to ensure the hospital’s services remain sustainable for the public. To achieve this, the hospital will increase deposit amounts,” she said.
“For instance, minor surgeries like toe amputation cost $1400, and the previous deposit was $875. The new deposit will be $1000, but the cost of the procedure remains the same,” she stated.
The St. Jude Hospital encourages patients to feel free to reach out to its patient billing service representatives at the patient billing offices for more information on payment plans and financing options for medical services.
We at St. Jude thank the general public for its continued cooperation and support for the hospital.
