Hospital is always an expensive thing and it will cost you a lot. You need o go to a government as private hospital charge you a lot of money.

Yeah, Hospital observation can definitely be pricey. I learned about this when I visit this site a few weeks ago to look for my mother's hospital. I was surprised to see it was so much expensive.
