Hospital Charges

Understanding Hospital Prices

While hospital charges can be confusing in a consistently changing environment, the team at University Hospitals Elyria Medical Center is committed to keeping our prices among the lowest in our community. We are also committed to correct and transparent billing. If a service appears on a bill that was not provided, call 440-329-7833 and our team will investigate immediately.

We charge patients and insurance companies the same price for individual services. In addition to hospital charges, patients may be billed by other professionals who participated in providing care.
