High Prices at a Confiscated Hospital

The Misaghieh Hospital, owned by Baha’i shareholders, has been confiscated for the benefit of the Baytu’l Mal [State Fund], and is run by the Bonyad-e Mostazafan.  Nonetheless, rates of treatment in this hospital remain very high, so much so that the cost of a bed in a private room is 550 rial per night, a room in CCU is priced at 6,200 rial per night, and a nursery at 900 rial per night.
