Ask to see a Hawthorn Medical specialist

Did you know that you can insist upon seeing a Hawthorn physician specialist if you are admitted to area hospitals, including St. Luke’s Hospital? While Hawthorn’s preferred facility is Saint Anne’s Hospital, you can make your wishes known to the staff at any area hospital that you want a specialty consultation with a Hawthorn provider if you feel that is needed. See our list of providers.

Some insurance coverage depends on your individual plan so contact your insurance carrier to confirm whether the physician you would like to see participates in your plan. If you are acutely ill, always go to the nearest hospital.
