New York City hospitals have the highest costs in the nation, according to a new study from the Kaiser Family Foundation.
The city is also the least-expensive place to get treatment for a variety of health problems, according the study, which was released Thursday.
The study found that hospitals with the highest rates of acute and chronic conditions spend about $10,000 per patient per day, while hospitals with lower rates spend about half that amount.
Those costs also vary widely by hospital, the report found.
The most expensive hospital was Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan, which spent $1,054 per patient.
The cheapest hospital was a group home for people with HIV/AIDS in Manhattan.
All told, hospitals spent about $14,000 a day on care for residents with serious health conditions, including cardiac and lung problems, the study found.
“The data show the financial impact of chronic conditions and their related care is far greater in NYC than in other big metropolitan areas,” said Paul Fuchs, president and CEO of the Kaiser Foundation.
“Even the smallest of hospitals can still see the financial burden of chronic health problems in their care.”
In the study’s top 20 hospitals, five of them are owned by private companies, including the Hospital Corporation of America, which has $1.3 trillion in assets.
In its analysis, the foundation found that about half of all hospitals in New York have no paid staff or paid residents.
About half of the hospitals with high rates of chronic care have no residents.
In the top 20, five hospitals have more than 3,000 residents, while the average is about 500.
Hospitals that have more residents than the average have higher rates of high costs, according a 2015 analysis by the American Hospital Association.
Hospital systems have faced a variety, but most often include: overcrowding; inadequate staffing levels; and inadequate facilities and facilities that have not been maintained.
The hospitals with a higher rate of chronic diseases are in the Northeast, Midwest and South, the city said.
The average number of beds per patient is about 9.7, which is higher than in the Midwest and the Southwest.
About 60 percent of the population is 65 and older, and about 40 percent of residents are older than 65, according Kaiser.
Hospital leaders are calling for improved staffing levels and staffing improvement in the hospitals they oversee.
“It is time for the city to step up and get back to work and build on the success of the past few years,” Fuchs said.
