Another Hospital Waives Co-Pays For Shooting Victims

Parker Adventist Hospital Treated 3 Aurora Theater Shooting Victims

A fourth hospital says it will forgive part of the medical bills for the theater shooting victims.

Parker Adventist Hospital treated three victims and, hospital officials said they would adjust the bills of patients to cover hospital charges not paid by health insurance.

"We feel it is important to support the patients who have suffered as a result of this tragedy," says Morre Dean, Parker Adventist Hospital CEO. "We hope that this small gesture can help bring some comfort."

Earlier this week, Children's Hospital Colorado announced it would use donations to cover the medical expenses of the uninsured. For those who do have insurance, the hospital said it will waive all co-pays for shooting victims it treated.

HealthOne, which owns the Medical Center of Aurora and Swedish Medical Center, said it would limit or eliminate charges based on the individual circumstances of the patients.

University Hospital said it is working with the injured and their insurance companies but had no specifics.
