Daily Rates Increased
50 Cents and $1 by
Arlington Hospital last night an
nounced increases of 50 cents to a
dollar in dally rates for ward , and
semi-private beds, in a meve tc
[check mounting operating losses.
Beds in children's wards were
raised from $5 to $6. Those in four
bed wards for adult patients went
from $6 to $7, while semiprivate
accommodations, two beds In a
I room, were increased from $7.5C
Private room rates were left un
changed, at $9 and $10 a day.
The increase in Arlington's
charges for semiprivate beds was
the second in three months. A 50
cent raise in this type of accom
modation was announced in July
after hospital officials reported
semiprivate beds cost more at other
"Our increased rates have been
necessitated by sharply increased
ι costs," explained Karl H. York, hos
1 pital administrator, when the an
nouncement was made.
Averafe Patient Costs $15.49.
He said services extended to each
patient at the hospital now cost
an average of $15.49 a day. The
former room rates, plus extrs
charges for operating room, drug!
and other hospital items, did not
bring the average patient's payment
I to thie figure, he asserted.
Mr. Yofk listed the hospital'!
total operating costs through Au
gust of this year at $361,960, which
! ί put it $48,443 in the red:

official said, Arlington hopes tc

11 charity patients, however, is about
! $10, he pointed out.
Chest Unit Pays $5 a Case.
Arlington Hospital receives onlj
$5 a day for indigent cases iron:
the Health Security Administration
which dispenses Community Chest
; Federation funds. Arlington Countj
makes up the difference between $!
and actual cost for tax-eligibl(
county residents, about 20 per cen
of the county's HSA patients. Fair
fax County, which supplies 60 pei
cent of the hospital's charity load
During the last few years, risinj
hospital costs have forced Arling
ton officials to make an annual ap
peal to the community for dona·
j tions. The September, 1946, drivi
raised $52,000, but another cair
paign last May netted only $33,000
While regretting the necessity t<
; raise room rates, Mr. York pointée
out that the average patient's hospi
1 tal expenses are limited today b'
; the fact that most people don't stai
as long in their hospital beds as the;
i JJsual Stay Is Six Days.
At Arlington, he said, the averagi
j stay is only six and a half days, du<
to improved medical technique?
the use of penicillin and the sulfi
drugs and the growing advocacy ο
early ambulation instead of a lonf
convalescence in bed.
More rapid cure and recovery
while it involves added daily ex
pense, shortens the time in whicl
wage earners must suffer loss ο
income, the administrator explained
He cited a recent survey of thi
American Medical Association whicl
showed the average family spend:
more money on liquor, recreatioi
and tobacco than on medical care
Of each medical care dollar, hi
added, only 16 cents goes to th
hospitals. The rest is spent oi
doctors' and dentists' fees, drug
and other services.
