I think St Vincents is the only hospital that, while you are still paying on a bill, because you can't pay the full amount or what they WANT you to pay, they turn the bill over to collections. They won't work with you and if they don't like what you can afford to pay they are very rude and disrespectful. I do not like St V's any more and do not go to them unless there are no other choices.
