I ended up here because i cut my arm pretty bad and was in need of stitches. I went to the emergency room with reasonably good insurance (state of Nebraska insurance). Eleven stitches later I left. Then two weeks or so go by and I get a bill from the hospital for $1,100.00, and given only a year to pay. So hooray for me and another $100.00 per month bill. The prices they charge at this hospital are outrageous. How do I know? Prior to going to BCHHC I cut my finger and was again in need of stitches. This time though it was only 5. I didn't have insurance at this point and lived in Tecumseh. I went to the Johnson County Hospital emergency room and received stitches. My bill (without insurance) was only $600.00! That is only $500.00 less and I had no insurance. Also don't forget to pay or ask for BCHHC to give you a manageable payment because they don't care about your financial situation or whether you can afford to eat. They say this is what you will pay. If you fail to do it they will SUE YOU, and have your wages garnished. It is quite the nice little racket they have set up for the community they purport to care about serving. DO NOT GO HERE UNLESS YOU ARE DYING!! If you are able to drive to Lincoln or any other area hospital as BCHHC is greedy and only cares about lining their coffers. If google let you I would merely post the word of warning and give this place 0 stars as it is not even deserving of 1.
They are my last resort when not willing to drive all the way to Lincoln. More than half of the time they are rude or don't help. And a lot of the time you have to do their job for them, only minus the paycheck. Dr. Bear is the only doctor there I like in the ER. The women and children's clinic however is okay. Although I choose not to go there.
Great staff. They made sure that I was comfortable and took time to listen to my concerns. I love having incredible caring people in my community. My nurses Mark, and Janae were amazing, and Dr.Friesen was great.
I would have only given half a star but it wasn't an option. Kinda like in the area of Beatrice, NE when it comes to health care. My husband works all over this great Country building Petro-Chemical plants. While in Beatrice, his blood pressure shot way up and his normal meds he takes weren't working for him. So of to this ER we go were we presented our insurance card which states on the card there is no co-pay for emergency visits. I still receive weekly calls from this hospital telling me that I owe them my out of pocket cost for the year. Never in my entire adult life with insurance have I been scammed like this, ever! So even though we were there for nine hours to be told that there was nothing they could do for him. He needed to return to Texas to see his doctor, and oh by the way pay us 2500.00. Yeah I am disputing this and will NOT pay them this money, not one single dime of it! This hospital could stand to take a now from Texas hospital in how to care for sick people with compassion and caring understanding. Would never return to this hospital if my life depended on it! Consider yourself warned about this want to be hospital that needs every sick person that comes through the door to pay for their remodeling, very disappointed is an understatement.
My son went in with a possible broken knuckle. The Dr "Mike" that came in to see him was rude and had non caring attitude. I myself went to this hospital when I broke my leg. They sent me to Bryan West in Lincoln because they didn't want to deal with it. We will not be back to this hospital.
