St. Bernards prides itself on helping patients control healthcare costs and make informed decisions—while delivering superior care and an outstanding patient experience. 

To improve transparency and help patients better prepare for healthcare expenses, we have published a list of high volume services and their associated expected hospital fee. Your price could vary. Services provided within a condition, diagnosis or procedure can vary from patient to patient. You will be charged only for those services provided to you. 

Please note: prices shown are the hospital’s average prices, based on historical data, and should be used only as estimates. The price estimates do not include any professional charges for physicians such as surgeon, anesthesiologist, pathologist, emergency room physician, hospitalist, radiologist, etc.

We recommend using the prices listed as a starting point to help estimate what your out-of-pocket cost will be. Actual out-of-pocket cost will depend on a number of factors, including third party insurance coverage, annual deductibles and coinsurance amounts. 

With your insurance information, we can help you estimate the actual out-of-pocket cost. If you would like assistance in calculating an estimate, please call Amy Roark in the Business Office at 870.207.7200. She is available from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, or you can e-mail your request to

Price Transparency

In accordance with federal guidelines, St. Bernards strives to offer price transparency to all of our patients. The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services requires all healthcare facilities to make a list of standard charges public and easily accessible. More information about these regulations can be found on the CMS website.

Please note: This is not reflective of what a patient will actually pay. Standard charges are typically reduced by insurance contracts, community benefits, charity care and other adjustments. A patient’s care at St. Bernards will likely be a combination of these charges as supplies, labs, medications and other items are charged together.
