Financial Assistance


It is the mission of Memorial Health System (MHS) to improve the health of the people and communities we serve.

To better serve the community and further our mission, Passavant Area Hospital accepts a wide variety of payment methods and offers resources to assist the patient and responsible party in resolving any outstanding balance.

Passavant Area Hospital recognizes there are occasions when a patient is not financially able to pay for their hospital care, and is not covered by any payer. Since the provision of care is not dependent on the patient’s ability to pay, Passavant Area Hospital has established guidelines in which a patient may apply and qualify for financial assistance. Passavant Area Hospital strives to balance needed patient financial assistance with the broader fiscal responsibilities to accomplish our mission.

Colorectal Cancer Screening Kit Pick Up

Posted on: March 13, 2017

Passavant Area Hospital and the Mia Ware Foundation are again partnering to bring prevention and awareness for colorectal cancer with a screening kit pick up and Community Health Talk later this month. The free kits will be available Thursday, March 30, from 4 to 6 p.m. and Friday, March 31, from 9 to 11 a.m. in the circle drive at the main entrance to Passavant, 1600 W. Walnut. Individuals should simply drive up, fill out a short questionnaire, talk to a nurse, and then complete the kit at home. The kit is then mailed to Passavant, with test results returned by mail in three to four weeks. The screening kits are new this year and are more convenient with only one stool sample required. They use the fecal immunochemical test screening method for hemoglobin in the stool. The test is considered the new standard for early detection of blood in the stool, one of the early warning signs of colorectal cancer. Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S., but if detected early, 90 percent of those deaths are preventable.

Dr. Rakinic topic is “Screening for Colorectal Cancer: Is it Worth the Bother?” The program begins at 12 noon in Meeting Rooms 2 and 3 at Passavant. A complimentary lunch is included. Call 479-5800 to register.
