Main Campus/Emergency Department: Construction Blog
12/9/2009An important feature of the new Hospital is our plan to offer only private patient rooms. The feedback we have received about this has been very positive, however, one question seems to come up often: "Will my insurance cover the cost of a private room?"
The answer is yes.
You will not notice a difference in what you are charged for a private room versus a semi-private room. In fact, if you have been a patient at the Hospital recently, you may have already experienced this. We have been re-shaping our current inpatient units and nearly 70% of our rooms are now private.
We believe that private rooms will become standard in the future, and we are pleased to be able to give our patients the added privacy, safety and comfort of a private room.
