We’re Here to Help

The mission of Westerly Hospital is to compassionately provide a superior standard of community healthcare across generations. All patients are treated equally and are entitled to essential medical care required regardless of ability to pay.

Financial Assistance Programs

Yale New Haven Health understands that it can be difficult for some patients to afford paying their hospital bills. That is why we have a variety of financial assistance programs designed to help. Patients are required to complete a financial assistance application and provide requested documents to verify financial need.
