See hand-written bill from thyroid surgery performed at Mount Sinai Beth Israel in 1946

The patient in the photo had her right thyroid gland removed at Mount Sinai Beth Israel in March 2016. Her surgery took 40 min and she spent a total of 3.5 hours in the hospital. In 1946, the patient's mother-in-law underwent the same operation at Mount Sinai Beth Israel - a copy of the bill is shown on the left. Of note, the patient spent 21 days in the hospital at a cost of $23.50!! Truly incredible! IMG_2170 IMG_2136 IMG_2137
