Hospital stays cost more in Northern California than Southern California



Northern and Southern California have long argued over which one has the best sports teams, nicer climate and most stunning scenery. When it comes to healthcare, however, there's little debate: It costs a lot less to be hospitalized in the Southland. On average, hospitals in Northern California's six most populous counties collect 56% more revenue per patient per day from insurance companies and patients than hospitals in Southern California's six largest counties, according to a Los Angeles Times analysis of state records. In San Francisco, the most expensive of these northern counties, hospitals get $7,349 per patient per day on average. In Los Angeles County the figure is $4,389, and in San Bernardino County, it's $3,931 --- the lowest of the southern six.
