The family learned of a facility in Illinois that is willing to accept Andrea and offer her the opportunity to live, an expensive move that would require Andrea to be far removed from her family.

However, placing corporate greed ahead of all patient interests and the interests and wishes of the family, St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital has just notified the family that they are willing to pay the almost $17,000 to move Andrea to Illinois if they will immediately - that's TODAY, move Andrea out of St. Luke's to the Illinois facility. If the family waits until tomorrow to decide, St. Luke's will only pay half. And if the family can't make a decision by tomorrow, the hospital may consider to pay absolutely nothing. In other words, the hospital is attempting to force Andrea out of the hospital in order to stop the financial drain of the cost of her care.

St Luke's website has the caption "Live More " on their banner and has the following description:
St. Luke's Episcopal Health System has a unique commitment to patient care. As a faith-based, non-profit organization, St. Luke's believes that true healing involves the body, mind and spirit. Our approach goes beyond religion, focusing on the healing aspects of spirituality and based on deeply held trust, love, caring, compassion, and respect for well-being and life. Obviously this is nothing more than a "come-on" just to fool patients into thinking they can be trusted to be compassionate and respect life! Isn't this a rather "sic" use of false advertising?

In light of
their history, their lead should be "Come to St. Luke's and other Texas hospitals to have your life turned off"!

Urgent help is needed from bloggers and blog readers (contact hospital and redistribute this story through your email lists). Please, immediately contact the hospital by telephone and email, and advise them of your horror that a faith-based hospital that supposedly respects life would act so irresponsibly as to put dollars before a patients life, etc.... :

St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital, 6720 Bertner Ave., Houston, TX 77030 Main hospital telephone number - 832-355-1000

The family reports that the phone calls are working and the more the better. Do both telephone and email!

More to come - still breaking ...

More On Andrea Clark - URGENT Action Needed!


  1. I tried calling 3 times, the first 2 times St. Lukes Episcopal Hospital hung up on me, the last time I was given to an answering machine to "leave a message".

  2. It is the INSURANCE company and HOSPITAL ADMINISTRATOR that drives many of these battles. Doctors are no longer able to practice medicine!

  3. And, they call this a "Christian" Hospital?
