An increasing number of hospitals in New York and across America are competing for wealthy patients who will pay more for their services, offering luxury furnishings and hotel-like amenities.

The New York Times reports that V.I.P. rooms at the New York-Presbyterian cost patients $1,000 to $1,500 a day, while a suite on the penthouse floor costs around $2,400. The Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A., promises “the ultimate in pampering” with its $3,784 maternity suites. Hospitals such as these offer luxury amenities for patients during their stay. Many provide them with dedicated chefs, butlers, mouth-watering menus, panoramic views, marble baths, and deluxe accomodation.
