The University of Toledo Medical Center Financial Assistance Program  The University of Toledo Medical Center works with eligible patients and families to secure government assistance for medically necessary hospital-level services. If patients and their families are not eligible for government assistance, The University of Toledo Medical Center offers financial assistance.
