South Santa Clara County
The South Santa Clara County area is the fastest growing region near Silicon Valley. It is close to San Jose, about an hour from the Monterey Peninsula and within two hours of San Francisco.
While the communities are growing, they still retain the small-town ambiance that is evident as you sit and enjoy a Friday night concert in Morgan Hill or go to one of the many community functions, such as the famous Gilroy Garlic Festival.
Parks in Gilroy
As a “Tree City U.S.A.,” Gilroy is home to more than 400 acres of parkland, and Gilroy has won more park design awards from the California Park and Recreation Society than any other city in California. In addition to Gilroy’s extensive park system, state parks such as Mt. Madonna Park, Henry Coe Park and Adams-Chitactac Park are all nearby.
The climate is perfect for a lifestyle of healthy outdoor activities. Golf courses and outdoor theme parks are both options on nice days. Lake Tahoe and some of the best skiing in the United States is a four-hour drive away. You can take a walk along the beach in the morning, basking in the warm sun, and later that afternoon be skiing on the slopes enjoying the views from the ski lifts.
The word “verity” refers to the state of being true. For all of us associated with Verity Health System, that means we will be authentic in our interactions with our patients, their family members and with each other. We choose to align ourselves with the following values, aspiring to live into these values each day so that they may guide our actions.
We demonstrate that we value others and ourselves through our words and actions.
Where there is respect, there is peace I was taught to respect everyone, no matter who they are or what they look like. When I enter a patient's room, I use their name and ask them if I can turn on the light - I don't assume. It's simple: treat those as you would want to be treated.
— Josepha Sulubika, Laboratory Services
We provide our patients and their families with compassionate, quality care, treating them and each other with kindness.
Whether it is a patient, a co-worker, or one of my three children, caring is an important part of my life. Kindness to co-workers can be shown in little ways, such as making coffee or bringing in small gifts. I am fortunate to be in a job that takes care of people because I genuinely enjoy helping others.
— Stephanie Chole, RN, Maternal Child Health Services
We act with honesty and transparency and do the right thing.
To me, integrity means being sincere with yourself and others. Knowing that your actions match your words shows integrity. When I get home each night, I know that I have done my best for my department and my hospital.
— Frank Vieira, Environmental Services
We are dedicated to making a difference in the health of our communities and in the lives of those we serve.
Whether training a new nurse, or showing a patient how to care for themselves, I am passionate about teaching. Through teaching, I am able to pass on my healthcare knowledge to hopefully benefit the community.
— Ian Hopkins, RN, Medical/Surgical/Pediatrics
We are committed to being wise stewards of our resources, creative in our approach to challenges and opportunities, and accountable for the results we want to achieve as a charitable organization.
Stewardship means being aware. Trimming overhead a little on a daily basis ultimately gets us better equipment and more resources to serve our patients. We proudly serve as stewards to the health of our community.
— Mary Drottz, RN, Quality & Regulatory Affairs
Saint Louise Regional Hospital opened in 1989 as Saint Louise Hospital in Morgan Hill when the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul extended their healing mission from O’Connor Hospital into the South Bay.
The hospital relocated to Gilroy in December 1999 as Saint Louise Regional Hospital to serve the fast-growing communities of southern Santa Clara County. It is now a 93-bed community hospital that has grown, and continues to grow, with the community. We offer many services and 24-hour emergency medicine with CALSTAR emergency helicopter transport on the premises.
Sponsored by the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul, which began serving in the Santa Clara Valley in 1889, Saint Louise Regional Hospital extended its healing mission to Morgan Hill, San Martin and Gilroy, as well as northern San Benito County.
We are now part of Verity Health System, following core values consistent with our history and meeting the needs of our fast-growing community.
Saint Louise Regional Hospital is dedicated to nurturing healthy children and families, fostering self-sufficiency, and enhancing individual and community well being. Through value-based collaboration, our goal is to improve the health of our community.
Effective January 1, 2019, in an effort to “improve the transparency of hospital charges”, the Center for Medicare Services (CMS) has mandated that all facilities participating in the Medicare and Medicaid programs “make public a list of their standard charges” via the internet [CMS-1694-F].
Verity Health Systems gladly support this effort and is therefore providing this information to our patients by posting our price files for our facility charges on this site. Please note that the prices in the file reflect the hospital’s full charges, which do not take into account:
- Medicare, Medi-Cal and other government health care program reimbursement rates;
- Contract rates with health maintenance organizations (HMOs) and health insurers;
- Other privately negotiated discounts; and
- Hospital community benefit and charity care programs that provide care free of charge.
The charge description master (CDM) price file contains the hospital’s full charges for each item and service that the hospital provides. However, third party payers (for example, Medicare and Medi-Cal) do not necessarily pay the hospital on the basis of the CDM. Instead, they pay based on procedure or illness on the basis of a diagnosis-related group (DRG). These DRGs generally include multiple items and services listed on the CDM. A list of DRGs and an explanation of the items and services included in each DRG is included in the DRG file/available at www.cms.gov/ICD10Manual/version34-fullcode-cms/fullcode_cms/P0001.html.
The CDM file consists of charges related to all services including supplies, devices, vaccines, radiopharmaceuticals, room accommodation charge codes and pharmaceuticals of patients in the Verity Health Care Systems network.
The Price File contains the following elements:
- Procedure Charge Number – A unique identifier within the system for each chargeable item.
- Procedure Description Name – a brief description of the service being provided
- CPT® (Current Procedural Terminology) or HCPCS (Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System) code – this is a nationally recognized alphanumeric code utilized by the insurance industry and government payors to identify a particular service or item.
- Unit Price – The gross dollar amount charged for each item to the account
Variable prices may be present for services such as Reference Lab testing, implanted devices and items/services governed by other contracted rates. These prices may not be available for listing in the CDM since billed charges are based upon the charges invoiced by the contractor to Verity Health Systems at the time the service is provided.
Pharmaceutical prices listed are acquisition cost based. These costs may vary depending upon many factors such as date purchased and supplier. The patient may, therefore, see multiple prices for what appears to be the same medication. In practice, depending upon the dosage ordered by the provider, a patient may see multiple units of a single medication listed on a claim. The total of these units represents the total dosage provided to the patient. CHARGE GENERATION
Individual departments within Verity Health Systems may generate charges through an electronic charge or order communication system. Most charging information for a patient admission or encounter
originates from the CDM. The charges, charge descriptions, and all codes attached to a line item in the CDM, flow through electronic systems to Patient Financial Services (PFS), where corresponding claims are generated. The claims may be edited before submission to the appropriate payors based upon contractual terms.
The total charges listed for a particular encounter or admission may not necessarily represent the total payment expected by Verity Health Systems. The expected payment amount will vary based upon contractual arrangements between Verity Health Systems and the various payors, the insurance plan in which the patient is enrolled and other special programs for which the patient may apply and be found eligible for. We encourage you to contact our Patient Financial Services Department to assist you in estimating what your out-of-pocket expenses will be for a particular procedure.
