I went to Urgent Care for a swollen hand just to make sure it wasn't broken. They could not tell me how much it was going to cost me up front, or even after I was done. I asked if they could give me any idea how much it would be, was it going to be a couple hundred dollars or a thousand? They said oh no, it definitely wouldn't be a thousand, maybe closer to $300 at the most they said at the front desk. Upon check out, I again verified that this was Urgent care pricing and not ER pricing, the woman checking me out confirmed that. Well, guess what the bill came to? $965 all total. Oh and it's due IMMEDIATELY. Absolute joke. This hospital is NOT interested in people, just money. If I were dying, I still would never go there again.
""I was born at this hospital at 2:20am on the 21st of August of 1959 and my mother Baereuth Emma Schietrumpf worked as a nurse here during and after World War Two,,, yours, Robert Carl Slinger an American military veteran living in Salt Lake City, Utah.""
Actually got sicker while in this hospital, then they discharged me because I was "feeling better"(was throwing up everywhere begging for my zofran) without looking at my x-rays or blood work(which showed I was getting worse). I had to go to the ER later that night (went to SP) and was admitted to St. Mary's the next morning(had been full the night before).
They're a very caring
Having spent the past few years battling multiple chronic illnesses, I am frequently in the emergency room for different reasons (anaphylaxis, crippling headaches, and complications following treatment at other hospitals are the most common causes for me personally). The ER staff (aside from 1-2 select nurses and a respiratory therapist) have been PHENOMENAL. They respect and treat me based on how I present, along with what they know works for me. They have impeccable bedside manner and for that alone I have gone 30 minutes out of my way if I have a new issue, as they understand my chronic pain versus something new to my case. They have saved my life several times, and have put up with my sometimes less than stellar attitude without missing a beat. While I can't speak for many of the other departments, other than radiology which is also great, I can say that they have one of the best emergency rooms around.
