At Metro Health, it’s important to us that we provide convenient access to necessary medical care regardless of someone’s ability to pay. As part of our commitment to care for and to serve the needs of the community, Metro Health Hospital has instituted a policy designed to help patients who don’t have the financial means to pay for their hospital services.
Basic, medically-necessary hospital services may be available to you at no charge if you’re eligible under Metro Health Hospital’s Financial Assistance Program.
