Patients in LaVerendrye Hospital will pay the following rates: Beds in public wards will cost $1.75 per day, which is the standard rate throughout the province. At the present, there are only 4-bed public wards in the hospital, so that even here the patient will have more privacy than in the larger and not so modernly-equipped hospitals of larger cities.

Beds in semi-private wards will cost $3.00 per day. In these semi-private wards there are two beds.

Beds in private wards will cost $5.00 per day. There are one or two small private wards which will cost $4.00 or $4.50 per day, depending upon the size and location. The majority of the private wards will be in the $5.00 range.
