Emergency Room operations for daily care and treatment of about 100 people (~365,000/year). Cost: 100
2 Senior Patients who need hip replacement surgery. Cost: 50
10 patients (ranging in age from 18 to 45) receiving assistance in your inpatient drug/alcohol rehab unit. Cost:100
An MRI unit that is on the fritz and could die any day. Replacement Cost: 170
One of your two X-ray machines is inoperable and must be replaced. Cost 100
Ambulance drive-in area was damaged and needs to be repaired. Cost: 25
Training needs for nursing staff for certification requirements. Cost: 55
TOTAL: $700 million
