  4. There's a reason St. Mary's charges more for certain servicesRead the original story

    Sunday Jan 24 | The Grand Junction Sentinel

    Compliments to Charles Ashby and The Daily Sentinel for a well-researched and written article on health care "Cost Shift" on Sunday, Jan. 3.

    Compare medical costs before consenting to procedures The Daily Sentinel's article on health care cost shifting published in last Sunday's paper was an excellent outline and summary of the current status of Grand Junction's two largest hospitals, our area health insurers and the effect health care costs are having on area residents. Costs to support new services, new facilities and higher salaries are being passed along to western Colorado residents at a pace that is unsustainable for both area families and businesses.
