Going to the doctor won’t cost you more money at 2 Chippewa Valley hospitals

Eau Claire (WQOW) – With competition heating up in the Eau Claire healthcare market, two area hospitals have decided to hold the line on the prices.

HSHS Sacred Heart and St. Joseph’s Hospital usually implement a rate hike every July, but this year, the hospitals say there won’t be any change in pricing for services.

They said even though inflation is still occurring in healthcare, they are finding ways to become more efficient and cost effective.  

The hospitals have undergone two rounds of staff reductions in the past 1 1/2 years.

They said affordable healthcare is essential for the well-being of the community. 

The move comes as Marshfield Clinic is about to open the doors on its new hospital, just down the road from Sacred Heart.
