The average wait time in California emergency departments is four hours. When life’s accidents happen, you need precise medical attention. That’s why the Emergency Room staff at St. Helena Hospital... more is committed to providing precision medical care immediately upon your arrival.

You automatically see an ER nurse, who is licensed to begin treatment according to your needs. Once evaluated, you move through the emergency room process quickly and efficiently, receiving the highest standard of care and medical expertise.

I was sent to Saint Helena hospital for alcohol abuse prior to cancer treatment by the VA. I was released in 3 days as not having a alcohol problem. I went through cancer treatment with the VA and was... more released cancer free.
But that's not all the story.
Saint Helena hospital didn't bill the VA, and didn't bill me, they billed Medicare, which did not cover the entire bill. I did not know of this until one year later when I was sent to collection by Saint Helena Hospital who NEVER NOTIFIED ME. I paid the bill to the collection agency under the understanding this could be straightened out with Saint Helena Hospital. When we contacted Saint Helena Hospital the person we talked to saw the mistake and was going to deal with it.
We have been requesting Saint Helena Hospital to resolve this situation for approximately one year. San Francisco has the payment set aside for Saint Helena Hospital and WILL PAY AS SOON AS THEY ARE BILLED, however to do this they must return the over charges to me.
I guess Saint Helena "got there money" so "screw" the vet on a fixed income. Oh yea the amount is $639.95, may not mean a lot to Saint Helena Hospital to straighten out there error, but to me on a fixed income it means $639.95, which is a lot of money.
Either way Saint Helena wins (they "got" there money) Watch your 6 vets. Or anybody else who can't afford Saint Helenas billing department screwup.
