The average cost for a patient was; $8.75 per week, Contagious Hospital $14.00, private room $30.00 per week and semi-private $16.00 per week. In-town residents paid a discounted rate of $7.00 per week or $14.00 per week if they were admitted to the Contagious Hospital. During 1917, the Hospital admitted the largest amount of patients. The Anthony N. Brady Memorial Laboratory was opened in September of 1917. A new nurse’s service station and bath room have been completed in the North Ward, as well as ice boxes installed in the new Administrative building for food storage. The Connecticut Training School for Nurses curriculum will be reorganized due to the increase of hours spent at the Hospital and less time in the class room. The new program will limit the time in the Hospital, and allow students to attend the required lectures. Nursing students remain in the school for three years of study.
