Hospital to treat tornado victims with no insurance at no charge

So wonderful to hear that a hospital in Cookeville, Tennessee will treat all victims of the devastating tornados from last week at no charge. There were 85 victims treated or being treated for injuries. They will bill their insurance companies and take what the companies pay as payment in full. For those with no insurance, there will be no charge for these patients.

So happy to see some compassion and true kindness from the healthcare community for those who have lost everything. God bless those who made this decision.

This should set an example for all hospitals in the country when a disaster occurs.

It's wonderful to see a hospital function as a hospital, especially in  a natural disaster.

 

How crazy have things gotten, that it even occurs to them to make this announcement.
