Cost of Hospitalization Nears 1,000 RMB Daily in Guangzhou

广州人住一次院,日花近千元

Updated Beijing Time

昨日,广州市卫生局发布了第三季度诊疗费情况。统计显示,7~9月广州人均每次门诊费用达到170元,比去年同期上涨了9.86%!

The average cost for individual outpatient treatment in Guangzhou rose to 170 RMB (25 USD) per visit from July to September, 9.86% higher than the same period of last year, according to a third quarter medical expense report released yesterday by the Guangzhou Municipal Bureau of Public Health.

与此同时,人均每日住院费用也高涨9.58%,逼近千元大关!

The average cost of hospitalization also increased by 9.58% to almost 1,000 RMB (147 USD) per day.

今年下半年以来,全国物价大涨的势头都已经降了下来,在这种情况下,为何医疗费独独逆市独涨?

The rise in medical costs seems odd since most prices did not surge during the second half this year.

广州市卫生局有关负责人表示,这次医疗费上涨情况比较复杂, 卫生部门会进一步跟进此事,了解涨价的原因,并尽快通过媒体向市民公布。

An official from the bureau said the increases have resulted for complicated reasons. He also added that the authorities will further investigate the matter and soon announce the causes publicly.
