In today’s uncertain economy, almost everyone has a friend or family member who has lost a job or is trying to survive on less income. At St. Joseph’s Hospital, we follow the Franciscan tradition of helping the poor and the sick.
The hospital has established several financial assistance programs to help patients and families who are unable to pay for hospital services including:
- Uninsured Christian Care is for those uninsured individuals whose family income falls below 600% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines (FPG).
- Uninsured Discount Program is for those uninsured individuals whose family income is in excess of 600% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines (FPG).
- Traditional Christian Care is for those individuals whose gross income falls below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines (FPG).
For those patients with balances remaining after consideration of these programs, the hospital has established the following payment expectations:
- The balance of account(s) must be paid in full within 24 months of the date of service, if the balance cannot be paid in full immediately.
- The minimum monthly payment of at least 1/24th of the balance due or $25, whichever is greater, shall be expected. For accounts with a balance under $250, the minimum payment shall be $25.
With these programs, St. Joseph’s offers quality healthcare to all who need it, while striving to preserve the dignity of the individual. Please contact our Business Office at 526-5308 to determine if you qualify for one of these programs.

The FDA advised healthcare professionals to contact any patient that was administered a New England Compounding Center injectable product after May 21, 2012.
Records show that no pharmaceuticals from NECC have been received at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Breese since spring of 2011, and at that time, it was not the product in question.
Hospital President and CEO Mark Klosterman commented, “We want our patients to rest assured that although at one time we did purchase from NECC, the product linked to the infection was never used here. We have not received any products from NECC for more than a year.”
