Financial Assistance

Rio Grande Hospital and Clinics are dedicated to providing medically necessary health care services; these services are accessible to all, regardless of age, gender, geographic location, cultural background, physical mobility, or ability to pay. We are committed to providing health care services and acknowledge that in some cases the patient will not be financially able to pay for the services received. In those particular cases the patient will be screened, and a determination of eligibility for financial assistance will be initiated prior to or at the time of admission.
