One 35-year-old cancer patient who needs significant      time with the doctor, medical supplies, tests, and around the clock care:      Cost: 100
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: 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
