Baby Delivery Hospital Fee in 1951

This is the charge for the delivery of a baby with a 4 day stay for mother and baby - room and board
minus the Doctor fee.  $77.10 total charges for the hospital stay.



And then a $75.00 Doctor fee added to it.  He clearly put the screws to them.

So that is $152.10 for a baby delivery and 4 days stay in a hospital for mother and baby.

If you correct for the Consumer Price Index (CPI) that delivery and 4 days stay in a hospital would
cost $1,380 in 2014!  That unlikely to be the case.
