We were there when my girlfriend was real sick . We were there for 3 days. She did not have insurance and I see some one made negative comments that if you did not have insurance they were uncaring. I... more found that statement to be completely inaccurate and false. There where several other people there in the same position as us and they were all treated very well. The food was very good. The rooms beautiful and very clean, but felt homely for a hospital. The staff were excellent and courteous and informative. Usually if someone has a complaint about everywhere they visit, its because the problem is them and not everyone else. Better than DG (Denver Health). Do not go there.
I must sing the praises of the Oncology staff at Lutheran. They work tirelessly to take care of their patients, going above and beyond in every aspect. Going to the hospital, and certainly being diagnosed... more with Cancer is never on the top of someones list- but if the unthinkable happens- it's good to know that you have top notch medical staff at your finger tips.
Beware the anesthesia charge!! We are self pay, went in for a scheduled procedure and payed in cash to the hospital. The bill included most of the costs besides our doctor who billed separately. The... more anesthesiologist was with us for 1 hour and 6 minutes for pre op/op/post op time. The bill from the hospital covered all the anesthetics and machines to administer and monitor. The bill we got from "Physician Anesthesia Services" was for $1,800. They offered a discount if we paid in full bringing the total to $1,350. Nice discount but when you consider this bill only paid for the anesthesiologists time of 1 hour 6 minutes, you start to scratch your head. I don't know of any profession that bills this rate for 1 person for 1 hour when the customer comes to you. I called asking for an explanation and they told us they bill by 1/4 hour increments (fine) and always round up (perfectly logical) oh and for your procedure we ADD 1 hour and 45 minutes to the total time.....(wait what??) No we won't take any of that additional time away, No you can't appeal this bill to anyone, oh and if you don't pay quickly that discount will go away and we will come after you for the full $1,800 you owe. I know Lutheran is not the culprit here....but they are the ones letting this company work at the hospital, and not offering their patients any other choices. Maybe if we had 2-3 anesthesiologists to choose from they would bid against each other driving the price into a more reasonable range. Our doctor who did the surgery had a price that included 10 pre op visits, surgery, and one post op visit for a total price of $2,475. Much more understandable.
