Crittenton HospitalAwful company

A family friend, 24 years old, went to Crittenton hospital in Rochester MI seeking treatment for a very rapidly growing form of testicular cancer. His cancer has quadrupled in the six weeks since he has been diagnosed. He does not have insurance, but waiting for treatment is not an option.

The hospital was very nice, telling him just to worry about getting better and they would worry about the money later. They even helped him fill out medicaid forms, which he should qualify for. He went in and had a testicle removed, then a couple of weeks later, had to start chemo. He went through the first round of chemo in the hospital because the doctor was worried about his kidneys failing. Everything was fine.

He is due to start the second round next week and Crittenton decided Monday that they will not treat him anymore unless he pays $2, 000 every time he walks in the door. He can not work while he is being treated and does not have money saved up. Testicular cancer is very curable if treated promptly. Crittenton hospital basically gave this young, 24 year old, US citizen, a death sentence. He will die if he is not treated on schedule.

Crittenton will get their money, he will qualify for medicaid. The cancer will not wait for the paperwork to go through. I have had two children at Crittenton and go there for everything. I will no longer go to a hospital that hands out death sentences.
