There were 28, 439 patients admitted to the hospital during the fiscal year. Patients admitted for general care were charged $42.33 per day, an increase of almost 6% from the previous year. Dana Operating Pavilion was opened on November 13, 1961, thanks to the gracious sponsors; Charles A. Dana, Victoria Foundation, John Day Jackson, Hill-Burton Program. An 8 bed research unit on Tompkins 5 was made possible with a grant from the US Public Health Service. The Board of Directors made a revolutionary change by giving a small Executive Committee most of the Hospital Responsibility and decreasing the Board to 18 members, and electing 6 members each year instead of 30.
