"SurePayHealth enables Memorial staff to educate patients about patient responsibility prior to service," said Chris Stottlemyer, Director of Patient Accounting. Staff will be prepared to collect payments prior to service being rendered. SurePayHealth will also assist the hospital to identify patients who may require financial assistance through Memorial's Financial Hardship Program. The goal is to collect these amounts prior to service so patients can concentrate on their health and not be surprised down the road. Also, it's not the hospital's intention to delay or cancel services, but rather provide education and information so important in today's environment.

"York Memorial will be a superior partner for Recondo," said Rick Adam, Recondo Founder and CEO. "The hospital has a vision for the future and is assertive at carrying out that vision."
