Ascension to set aside $20 million from KC-area hospital sales for indigent care


The owner of St. Joseph Medical Center and St. Mary's Medical Center has agreed to set aside $20 million from its pending sale of those hospitals for charitable care.

In a news release Wednesday, Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster said nonprofit Ascension Health agreed to the set-aside after concerns raised by his office that the money be made available for acute indigent care.
