Sacred Heart Hospital Rates Increase 7 Percent

An Eau Claire hospital says it will start increasing its rates by more than 7% this summer.

Sacred Heart hospital says the rate increase of 7.3% takes effect in July.

A spokesperson from the hospital says July is the start of the hospital's 2009 fiscal year. The hospital says the increase makes up for inadequate Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement.

Last July, the hospital raised its rates by 8%.
