Why are payments for bills from Lawrence Memorial Hospital sent to a P.O. Box in Kansas City, Mo.? Isn’t there a billing company in Lawrence or Kansas that could handle this?
Belinda Rehmer, LMH communications coordinator, said the address in question is not a billing company but the lockbox address for Commerce Bank. LMH uses the local Commerce Bank for its banking services. Payments sent to the P.O. Box address are a direct deposit into the bank account for the hospital.
